All credit unions are run as co-operatives – owned by their members, and managed by a Board elected by the members at the Annual General Meeting. In addition there is a Credit Committee which is responsible for approving loans and a Supervisory Committee, independent of the Board, responsible for internal audit.
Board members serve for three years before coming up for re-election – these dates are indicated on the listing. The 2017 AGM reduced the Board to eight Directors, with a quorum of four, but allowing for an EGM to increase the Board to ten should there be an opportunity to co-opt more Directors.
