Board of Directors
The Board of Directors at G&F Financial Group has a fiduciary or ‘trust’ relationship with the credit union. It acts independent of management and monitors the credit union in the collective best interests of all G&F Financial Group members. The Board wears many hats and is responsible for guiding the credit union’s strategic direction through the creation of its mission and vision.
