Are you interested in non-profits? Do you want hands-on experience in the banking industry? Want to make industry connections before you graduate? Numerica Credit Union is again looking for one junior to serve on its Board of Directors for the 2022-2023 academic year. Being on a board of directors is a prestigious post. This is an opportunity to learn about the inner workings of a financial institution and to network with people in the industry. The opportunity is open to all business, accounting, and economics students. Accounting and finance students may find it most in line with their course work, but it is good experience for any business student who is looking for experience in non-profits, community organizations, or servant leadership.

Gonzaga has had several students earn this prestigious position over the years. It is a great way to build your resume and apply your classroom learning.

To qualify, you must be a junior-level business or accounting major and be able to commit to two years of service to the Board as a non-voting member. You will be expected to contribute to the board including attendance at meetings on the fourth Monday of each month at 5 p.m. You must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 and a GPA of at least 3.0 across all your business courses (or their equivalent). You cannot be on any type of university probation. You also must meet with the approval of the Numerica Board, as they make the final selection decision. You must also join/be a member of Numerica Credit Union, pass background checks, and sign confidentiality and ethics agreements.

If you are interested, complete this form using your Zagmail address. The form requests a current resume and a 300-word statement of interest that includes a section on how you would best serve and fulfill your duties as a student director. You also must receive two recommendations from Gonzaga faculty/staff using this form. Applications are due Oct. 4.

Student membership on the Dean’s Business Forum Board (DBFB) is an opportunity for Gonzaga business students to gain first-hand experience in board-level activities, foster community mentoring relationships, and build networking experiences. 

The term of service, which can be extended at the discretion of the Dean, begins in the fall semester and concludes with the last meeting in the spring semester.  Student members fully engage in board discussions, serve on optional task forces and committees, and otherwise engage as regular members of the board. Meetings are generally once a month at 7:15 a.m. Tuesday mornings.

Only a limited number of students can serve on the board. To apply, use this form using your zagmail address to submit your application before Wednesday, Sept. 13.
