Board of Directors

Join the team : https://londoncu.com/lccu-board-nomination/

London Community Credit Union is governed by a board of directors made up of members, elected by the membership at the annual general meeting.

Directors are unpaid and each is elected for a three-year term. At any time, there are between 10-15 directors. Any member can stand for election and we are always on the lookout for volunteers.

The board meets monthly, and most directors serve on other committees such as Finance, Audit or Loans.

From its number, the board elects a chairperson, vice-chair, treasurer and secretary. These members are the executive officers and they serve for a period of a year. At present they are:

LCCU Executive Committee
  • Chair – David Morgan
  • Secretaryvacant
  • Anti-Money Laundering Officer – Gary McKeown

The Executive Committee meets monthly to support the board in its work.
