The credit union structure values the input and opinions of its members.
Unlike other financial institutions, such as banks, each person who opens an account with G&F Financial Group becomes an owner.
As a member, you receive a Membership Equity Share, making you a partial owner of the credit union. Your membership entitles you to vote on policies, elect Board members, and even run for a seat on the Board of Directors.
As a financial co-operative, G&F Financial Group is guided by the seven international principles of co-operatives:
- Voluntary and open membership
- Democratic member control
- Member economic participation
- Autonomy and independence
- Education, training and information
- Co-operation among co-operatives
- Concern for community
Governance and leadership at G&F Financial Group is divided into two units: the Board of Directors and the CEO’s Office. Each with their own areas of responsibility, these two units work in partnership to achieve the objectives of our credit union.
