INTERESTED IN BEING PART OF OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS?

We are looking for dedicated people who are interested in joining our team as a member of our Board of Directors. Volunteering to serve on your credit union’s Board of Directors can be an extremely rewarding experience. Not only will you gain valuable knowledge, but you will also be representing your fellow credit union members and be in a position to help them realize their financial goals and dreams.

Credit unions are not-for-profit corporations that are owned and operated by their members. It is the directors’ responsibility to set the credit union’s objectives and long term goals. As a credit union board member you have the ability to be a voice for the Pittsburgh Credit Union members and help us build a strong financial future.

Expectations of a credit union volunteer are:

  • Believing in the credit union philosophy
  • Attend meetings and participate in credit union functions. Board meetings are typically once a month.
  • Have a willingness to learn
  • Act in the best interest of your fellow credit union members
  • Be a team player

Each year the board will appoint a nomination committee who will review the applications and Petitions for the office of director and select the individuals who are qualified for the position. Nominations for elections may only be made by the nominating committee or by petition to the nominating committee. Directors are elected to a three-year term and may run for re-election if they wish.

If you are interested in joining our team please Contact the CEO Hope Egnac at

412-381-6363
Pittsburgh Federal Credit Union
317 Brownsville Rd

Pittsburgh PA 15210

Director positions do not always vacate every year, so please be patient. We will keep a list of potential candidates for future openings.

 

 

Four Tips for Healthy Credit

  1. Understand the components of a credit score.

Healthy credit is more than just the rate you pay on a credit card. Your credit can affect your ability to purchase a home, send your child to college and plan for retirement.  FICO Scores are used in over 90 percent of U.S. lending decisions, so understanding how this number is calculated is an important step to improving and managing the health of your credit.

  1. Aim to only use 30 percent of your available credit.

Using more than 30 percent could negatively impact your score. Keep in mind that most credit card companies report your outstanding balance as of the statement closing date. Paying your bill in full each month prior to the statement closing date will help keep your utilization down and your score up.

  1. Be careful not to close out your older credit accounts.

Closing older credit accounts could decrease the reported length of your credit history and negatively impact your credit score.

  1. Be mindful when submitting multiple credit applications.

If you are considering a large purchase such as a car and will be submitting multiple credit applications, try to do so within two weeks to avoid having multiple inquiries impact your credit score.
