Sentinel Federal Credit Union, a member owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative dedicated to serving its communities, invites you to apply for a position on the Supervisory Committee.

The Supervisory Committee is responsible for ensuring the Board of Directors and management of the Credit Union meet required financial reporting objectives and establish practices and procedures sufficient to safeguard members’ assets. The Committee ensures Sentinel FCU’s accounting records and financial reports are promptly prepared and accurately reflect operations.
