The commission, which was created in 1971, is composed of seven members who are appointed by the governor for a term of four years. It provides oversight of the state’s credit unions, which is “a cooperative, nonprofit association, incorporated … for the purposes of encouraging thrift among its members, creating a source of credit at a fair and reasonable rate of interest, and providing an opportunity for its members to use and control their own money in order to improve their economic and social condition.”
