Supervisory Committee

Looking to be a part of our team?

Our volunteer Supervisory Committee consists of hard working individuals from around Cumberland and York Counties. We are seeking additional volunteer Supervisory Committee members from these communities to help ensure that TruChoice complies with regulations and policies, and acts in the membership’s best interest.  This opportunity will provide individuals an opportunity to understand how financial institutions operate through active participation in financial institution auditing and oversight.  We are looking for candidates who are detail oriented, enjoy solving puzzles and want to make a difference in their community!  Previous accounting or risk management experience is a plus. If interested, please contact us at

About TruChoice Federal Credit Union:

TruChoice is a strong, dynamic and growing credit union serving most of Maine. We set ourselves apart from other financial institutions by engaging our team and our members in our success.  At TruChoice the credit union spirit of ‘people helping people’ thrives at every level of the organization, including with our volunteers.  While banks aim to generate profits, we focus on helping individuals regardless of the financial circumstance to build better lives for themselves.  This translates to a business model that promotes thrift, savings and sound credit use.  We aim to become financial partners that can help empower people with educational and personal financial tools -- like budgeting, car buying assistance, and credit score analysis -- to help them take control of their financial lives.
