Why Attend the Annual Meeting?
The credit union’s Annual Meeting is a huge part of what makes credit unions different from banks. Its where the membership gets to choose the volunteer Board of Directors for the credit union. By attending the Annual Meeting, members will hear a variety of reports pertaining to the credit union, as well as what the credit union leadership has planned for the year.
In accordance with our by-laws, to be a bona fide member of the credit union - which entitles you to vote at the annual meeting - you must have your own $5.00 share in a share (savings) account. Someone who is joint on the account is not a bona fide member unless they have their own share (savings) account. Any bona fide member that attends the Virtual Annual Meeting will be entered for a chance to win one of several gift cards.
