NEFCU is actively seeking candidates for the Board of Directors. 

Nebraska Energy Federal Credit Union is governed by a nine member volunteer board of directors. The board members have the responsibility for directing and controlling the affairs of the credit union's operations, including the development of a strategic plan. Credit Unions were founded on the principal of "people helping people" and as a volunteer, you would be putting that philosophy into action.
