Annual General Meeting Notice

Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of Copperfin Credit Union will be held on April 15, 2019 at 7:00 pm at The Sovereign Room, 220 Red River Road, Thunder Bay.

The meeting is being held to:

  2. The new by-laws clarify how director candidates’ disclosure statements regarding conflicts of interest are made available to the membership;
  3. The new by-laws clarify the majority required for the Board to remove a director of the Credit Union for cause;
  4. The new by-laws permit the Credit Union to give notice of membership meetings by e-mail or by posting the notice on the Credit Union’s website; and
  5. The new by-laws permit the Credit Union to give notice of the nomination period for director elections by e-mail or by posting the notice on the Credit Union’s website.
