Why an Annual Meeting?

Why an Annual Meeting?

One of the ways Coosa Valley Credit Union demonstrates our uniqueness in the financial services world is by holding our Annual Meeting with our member-owners. Everybody knows that being a member-owner is better than being just a customer, right?

The credit union Annual Meeting is actually the annual meeting of the membership. This a huge part of what makes credit unions so different from banks. It is at the Annual Meeting that the membership gets to choose the volunteer Board of Directors for the credit union. You also get to hear about the plan the credit union leadership has for the year.

Plus, you can meet the credit union's Board of DirectorsPresident/CEO, and the Management Team. You also have the opportunity to hang out with the staff that you see in the branches and talk with on the phone with every day! Plus, you can meet with other credit union members. This too, is a fundamental difference between a credit union and a bank, it's what makes us a family!

Each credit union does things a little differently for their Annual Meetings. At CVCU, we have a nice meal and all members in attendance are entered into prize drawings!

The Annual Meeting is definitely one of the many benefits of credit union membership, and I encourage you to attend the Annual Meeting for your credit union. Coosa Valley’s Annual Meeting is Feb. 23, 2019 at 6 p.m., at The Forum in Rome. See you there!
