Board of Directors Report

 

Our Chairman Bruce, delivered his report outlining the Boards thoughts on the previous year.  The Board believe it was another successful year for the Credit Union and would like to thank all of the  staff and members for their dedication.  Bruce said, “During these unprecedented times, we, as a Board, are committed to providing you with a continuity of service while strengthening the financial position and future of your Credit Union.  With our membership growing, our loan portfolio in a healthy state and our capital above the regulatory requirements we are in a strong position for the future.”

 

CEO Comments

 

“I believe our virtual AGM this year proved to be a great success, with record numbers of members registering to access the meeting in comparison to our usual face-to-face meeting.  Our members asked 8x more questions than in previous years and all took part in the voting requirements of the AGM.  A fully engaging, member participation meeting is what we would like to see every year.  Moving forward, the Board of Directors will consider holding future AGMs with a mix of face-to-face and virtual participants.

 

Finally, I would like to thank those of you who attended and played your part in the democratic process of your Credit Union.”
