Staff & Board

Our management team, branch managers, board of directors and supervisory committee are listed below. Our board of directors are voted in by our members, because members own SOCU. Our management team has over 70+ years experience in the credit union world. This has resulted in tremendous growth over the last decade at SOCU.
