Join the Junior Board of Directors! This highly innovative program is designed to immerse local high school and college students into the business of the credit union, leadership, and community service. Members of the JBOD will learn to conduct a meeting in accordance with Robert’s Rules of Order, work together as a team, and complete three objectives. The three objectives of the JBOD are: 1. Youth Entrepreneurship; 2. Community Service; and 3. Develop a product or service for Members of Modest Means. Members will gain invaluable experience and could earn a letter of recommendation for college, a job, or scholarship applications or pursue school credit for participation. In return, U.S. Eagle hopes to gain insight into perspective, and opinions on potential new products or services for young members of modest means and to give students a reason to return to the local business community after college.
Selected students will serve up to four (4) consecutive terms that coincide with the school year. They will attend a monthly meeting, from August through May. Students will also be invited to attend U.S. Eagle’s Annual Meeting in May.
Students will be expected to:
- Be a U.S. Eagle member in good standing
- Participate on the JBOD during their tenure
- Attend at least 7 of the 9 monthly meetings during the school year
- Arrange for transportation to and from meetings
- Assist in completion of community involvement project
