Did you know that every member of our Board of Directors lives and/or works in Essex County? Board Members are spread throughout our communities and they all come with differing backgrounds, experience and industry knowledge. They live, work and play in the 7 municipalities we serve. Why does this matter?
All of our loan decisions are made at the local level by our Board of Directors. People who understand the unique qualities of our region and the needs of our local economy. They know the key industry sectors that sustain us as well as the emerging sectors our future depends on. They make their decisions based on the full story, not just on whether particular ratios are met in the business plan. They have a vested interest in the future of our communities.
Do you have an interest in being a member of our Board of Directors? Do you either live or work in Essex County and feel you could contribute to our success? If yes, we’d love to hear from you. We currently have a full slate of volunteer Board Members but we do accept applications on an on-going basis to fill any vacancies that may arise. The last four Members who retired from our Board did so only because they’d reached their maximum term!
