Re-Elected to the Board

Dakotaland Federal Credit Union is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors. Directors are Credit Union members who are unpaid volunteers elected by the membership. These dedicated individuals set the direction of the Credit Union and set policies the Credit Union's management and staff follow in achieving our mission and vision. This year two board members will be running for re-election. Take a look and get to know our candidates.
