Volunteers

Credit unions are unique, not-for-profit, cooperative financial institutions owned by their members and guided by volunteers. As a not-for-profit organization, volunteers play important roles in our success. Therefore, Kauai Federal Credit Union is always looking for dedicated volunteers from within our membership to help serve in a variety of volunteer capacities.
