Member participation keeps TAPCO focused on the founding members' vision of "People Helping People."
While maintaining a professional staff to run daily operations, TAPCO is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that establishes and reviews policy. The Directors are TAPCO members who are elected by the membership and serve without pay. Every member has one vote, regardless of how much he or she has on deposit. At TAPCO, there is no select group of shareholders that profits more than anyone else. All members profit, individually and collectively.
TAPCO is a state-chartered credit union, organized under strict regulatory laws that are monitored and enforced by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the U.S. Government. Each member’s savings is federally insured to at least $250,000 and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government and the NCUA.
