  Our Staff and Volunteers

UDEL Federal Credit Union is member-owned, member-run. The success of the credit union can be attributed to the hard work and dedication of our paid staff and unpaid volunteers.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors are volunteers who manage the business policies of the Credit Union. The member-owners of the Credit Union elect the Board of Directors each year at the Annual Meeting.
