Become a director. Biggar and District Credit Union is our organization and we are a major part of our communities. Get out there, become involved and give something back.

— Jim Rickwood - Past President of the Board of Directors


It is a professional board consisting of 10 members from the Biggar, Landis and Perdue area. The directors are elected by the credit union members they serve for a 3 year term. They provide strategic direction to the management of the credit union.
The Board of Directors have monthly meetings where they provide guidance to the leadership team through the sharing of their experience, skills and perspectives. They are actively involved in determining the direction the credit union takes and makes sure that there is a solid plan in place to get there. They are not involved in day-to-day operations, but keep a close eye on operations to ensure that the rules are followed at all times.

"Strength lies in differences, not similarities," Stephen R. Covey
