Date for your diary: Annual General Meeting, Council Chamber, MK Council Offices, MK9 3EJ, at 7 pm on Monday 27 March 2017 (refreshments from 6.30).
This is the chance for you to meet the Board and fellow members of your credit union, hear how things are going, and make your views known. Your Board will once again be recommending to the AGM that a dividend be paid to our members in April, this year at 0.75% of average savings.
This year we have lined up a very interesting guest speaker – Robin Peake. Robin is a charity funded worker living and working on one of the most deprived estates in Oxford. He mainly works with young people to realise their potential to bring change to their community. Seeing the heart-breaking stories behind the statistics has given him ideas about how the lives of people living in disadvantaged communities can be improved, and the part that Credit Unions can play.
Members wishing to stand for election to the Board or Supervisory Committee need to inform the Secretary in writing with signatures by a proposer and a seconder before 13 March 2017. It is better however if potential candidates are known to the Board in advance. Our policy is therefore to encourage members to start initially as regular volunteers, assisting Board members before standing for election. We would particularly welcome women and ethnic minority candidates. Anyone interested should contact me at the e-mail address below.
Philip Turnbull, Secretary, Swan Credit Union
