NJCUL’s N.J. Director and Volunteer Networking Alliance (NJ DNA) keeps credit union directors and volunteers informed, connected and involved.

Credit union directors and volunteers are the DNA that this industry is built upon. And now, perhaps more than ever, a progressive, forward-thinking board is essential to effective credit union governance and leadership if credit unions wish to continue to be of value to their members, and grow as an industry. In light of this, the New Jersey Credit Union League recently developed a group–the NJ Director and Volunteer Networking Alliance, or NJ DNA– for directors and volunteers to work together and address issues facing volunteers today.
In an effort to give directors and volunteers the ability to work together and obtain necessary resources, NJ DNA provides credit union directors and volunteers a forum to meet, network, and ensure they meet current and future challenges head-on.
“Credit union volunteers are at the essence of what credit unions represent: a group of people pooling their own
resources for the common good of all involved,” said New
Jersey Credit Union League President/CEO Paul Gentile. “Credit union volunteers are members like those they represent and have no more to gain than any other member. That is truly the cooperative spirit. I want to see more New Jersey credit union volunteers get involved with our league so they can share their insight and work with us for our common goal of advocacy.”
