Meet the members who serve on our board.
Signature Federal Credit Union evolved from a credit union chartered in 1970 for the nation's Postmasters as NAPUS Federal Credit Union. Over time, we have expanded our field of membership to cover many different employee groups and associations. Your officials, listed below, serve in a volunteer capacity at your pleasure. The annual election of officials is conducted each year in accordance with NCUA Rules and Regulations, and every member is authorized to vote in that election.
