Glatt Consulting’s Tom Glatt, Jr. authored a CU Times opinion article titled Why Your Board Doesn’t Need to Look Just Like Your Members. The article appears on the Credit Union Times’ website, and explores demographic representation on credit union boards.
“A common thread weaving its way through credit union governance discussions of late is the suggestion that a board must look like its membership. The premise is that a board must reflect the diversity of its membership (a mix of races, age ranges, ethnic backgrounds, professional experience, etc.) in order to properly represent unique member-owner interests. This is a false assumption that has caused many boards a great deal of anxiety not to mention pursuit of a misguided end.”
