2020 Annual Meeting Recap
The 2020 Annual Meeting was held the afternoon of Thursday, September 17th. The meeting was postponed because of the pandemic, and as a result was held via GoToMeeting broadcast over Facebook Live. This was the first time the credit union held a virtual conference, and 51 members attended across both platforms.
Much of the conversation revolved around the credit union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the global turmoil, the credit union did not decrease any services or raise fees to its members. Moreover, employees were not furloughed or laid off and were able to work safely through the pandemic.
The credit union continues to explore new ways to provide products and services to its members while keeping their wellness and safety top of mind. Advancements in automation, including a new web presence, have reduced the need for the member to visit a branch to complete their business.
EXCEL hopes to resume hosting Annual Meetings in person next year. The credit union appreciates the support its members have shown this year, and always.
