What is the difference between a bank and a credit union.
Credit unions are not for profit. Credit union members share ownership of their credit union and have democratic control. They elect from their membership a volunteer Board of Directors, which appoints the Supervisory Committee and Credit Committee that also serves without pay.  All credit unions have a limited field of membership, meaning its members share something in common, such as where they work, live or worship.
