On October 10th, State Employees’ Credit Union hosted its 2017 Educational Luncheon and Annual Meeting at the Koury Center in Greensboro. Over 1,000 members from across the state attended the 80th celebration, which began with a luncheon and an educational segment highlighting the “coming attractions” for member service.
Patrick Adams, CEO of St. Louis Community Credit Union, served as the keynote speaker after the luncheon, giving a presentation focused on the Credit Union’s mission of service.
SECU Board of Directors Chair, Cynthia Jolly then presided over the General Membership Meeting, which included the business session, election of SECU Board of Directors, and recognition of retired volunteer Board members. During the Meeting, SECU Foundation Board Chair, Jim Johnson, introduced a video presentation featuring a few Foundation projects and personal testimonies from members. He remarked, “Your collective commitment for initiatives funded since 2004 has exceeded $130 million – producing life-changing results for those who need it the most.” SECU President/CEO Mike Lord then gave his remarks echoing the theme of service. Mr. Lord thanked attendees for emphasizing SECU’s “Do the Right Thing” mission of providing high-quality, low-cost financial products and services to meet the needs of members.
Diane Adams, Advisory Board member from the Charlotte-Providence Road branch, said attending the Annual Meeting was informative, but also a “collective cultural experience” that made her “proud to be a part of the SECU family and happy to share the benefit opportunity with new NC state employees!”
