about Building Reps

Wepawaug-Flagg relies on building representatives— essentially ambassadors or liaisons of the credit union—to help ensure our continued success as a financial provider.

What is a building representative?

Building Representatives are volunteers who help provide credit union information to co-workers and staff and work to spread the good word about our organization.

Those critical volunteers are responsible for posting credit union flyers and promotional materials for the view of fellow employees, including on bulletin boards and in lunch rooms.

The credit union will also provide our representatives with additional supplies for their employees, such as membership applications and brochures. Building Reps also schedule visitations with the credit union and promote credit union membership with their employees.

Want to become a Building Rep?

Simply call Wepawaug-Flagg, at (203) 288-1695 or E-Mail Michael Crutchfield at mcrutchfield@wffcu.org to volunteer. You may be able to serve as the Building Rep for your school or company, if the position is available and vacant.

As a reward for being a building representative, Wepawaug-Flagg will pay for your dinner at the annual meeting—our largest event of the year.
