A Steward's term at CUNA Mutual Group is for three years and there are a total of NINE positions to be filled, including the Chief Steward. Are you interested?

Now is the time for YOU to get involved!

We need people from across the company, in every department. If you want to work to ensure a long career with the company or maybe you're nearing retirement and want to leave things better than they've been, or you feel that the next contract needs some tough negotiating, we encourage any and all of you to step forward.
