Annual Meeting

Annual Meeting
Thank you to our members who joined the Zoom webinar event on March 26. Stay tuned for more information about the rescheduled Annual Meeting event later this year.
Dear Valued Member,

Due to the current COVID-19 situation in our communities, we have made the decision to postpone this year’s Annual Meeting. We will be rescheduling at a later date to be decided.

However, I will still be hosting the Zoom webinar event in real time, this Thursday, March 26 at 6:00PM with Chairman of the Board, Pete Bonacuse. During this live event, we will be communicating to members what steps the Credit Union is taking in order to ensure the health and safety of our members and employees. Those who choose to attend will be able to submit questions to us via the Chat feature and will be answered in the order in which they are received.

Once again, it is our sincere hope that all of our members are taking the necessary precautions to keep you and your families safe and healthy.

Thank you for your membership,
Sharon Signature
Sharon L. Churchill, CEO & President
Century Federal Credit Union

During our Annual Meetings, there may be a Board Member election for three Board Member seats, as three positions become available each year. If there is only one person nominated for each open seat, the election does not take place.

Please note that if you missed the deadline for the standard nomination process, you can still be nominated by petition. A petition must be signed by 25 or more CFCU members (in good standing), clearly providing the name, the signature and the SEG affiliation of the petitioner. The petition must be received by the Credit Union by the cutoff date of January 20, 2020, for the petition to be valid. For more information, please review this document.
