Virtual AGM

With Covid-19 impacting all of our lives, the safety of our staff, members and entire community is paramount. Therefore we have taken the decision to hold our Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) by virtual means which will result in us doing things a little different this year. We want our members to continue to have the opportunity to vote on key decisions about the running of the credit union including election of officers. Therefore our AGM will be held safely, securely and online.

Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) of Member First Credit Union will take place by virtual means on Monday, 29th November 2021, at 7.00pm.

This event will be accessed by a private link only available to our members. To register for access please sign up at our AGM 2021 page and include the details outlined below.
