Annual General Meeting 2020

February 23rd, 2021

A-B-C CREDIT UNION LIMITED

Dear Member,

 

2020 Annual General Meeting

 

In these unprecedented times, credit unions have done all that they can to continue to delivery vital services to their members, whist ensuring the safety of those members, their staff and volunteers. The Board of Directors hope all our members and their families are keeping well and safe.  With Covid-19 and the public health restrictions impacting on all our lives, we have taken the decision to hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) by virtual means which will result in us doing things a little differently this year.

 

We want our members to continue to have the opportunity to vote on key decisions about the running of the credit union.

 

The virtual AGM will therefore go ahead on 15th March 2021 at 6.00 pm.

 

If you wish to participate please email us before 8th March 2021 to enable us to send you the link to the Zoom.  (See guidance notes attached for participating in Zoom meetings).  The annual accounts will be available at both offices before the AGM.  If you have any questions or require a link please email AGM.ABC.CREDITUNION@outlook.com

 

How can you vote?  This year resolutions will be conducted by virtual vote.

 

Due to the specific difficulties we are facing in holding an Annual General Meeting this year due to Covid-19, the purpose of this year’s AGM is to deal with the essential business of the credit union.  This includes reporting to members on the financial status of the credit union, declare a dividend/interest rebate.  Any other non-urgent matters will be dealt with at the next year’s AGM.  As such, there will be no motions from the floor due to the difficulties in managing same remotely

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Maureen Magill

Chair –  A-B-C Credit Union Limited
