80th HMECU Annual General Meeting
Thank you to all who attended our 80th Annual General Meeting on Saturday, April 11th at Michelangelo’s Banquet Hall.  We heard reports from our Board Chair, CEO and others.  There were some special announcements and awards worth noting.  Shirley Strang was recognized for her time and commitment to the Good Samaritan Club and the 1st place "Focusing on our Future" Scholarship was renamed to the "Charlie Collura Student Leadership Award" in honour of our retiring CEO.  In addition, members elected 3 directors who will help steer the credit union in the years to come.  We would like to thank Kevin Beattie for his time and dedication over the years and congratulate Mike Kay and Ross Holland on their re-election.  We also would like to welcome Grant Sharp, from Hamilton Health Sciences, as our newest board director.  Click here to read your copy of the Annual Report.  Members enjoyed a wonderful dinner with entertainment and took home a fun memento of the night.  Thank you for contributing to our success! 
Please be sure to save the date for next year’s AGM on Wednesday, April 13, 2016.
