Last week, the League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Affiliates’ held the Annual Business Meeting in Birmingham, Ala., with approximately 100 in attendance in person and virtually.
Keeping in compliance the LSCU bylaws, the June 18 meeting was able to proceed meeting quorum requirements.
The Board of Directors Treasurer Rick Skaggs (USF Federal Credit Union) presented the Treasurer’s Report. The Board Chair Tina Williams (Mobile Educators Credit Union) and the LSCU CEO Patrick La Pine presented their remarks while LSCU board member Joe McKee (Legacy Community FCU) was present, representing the proxy votes.
“Normally, this meeting is held in conjunction with the Southeastern Credit Union Conference and Expo (SCUCE) in Orlando. However, because of COVID-19 and our decision to cancel SCUCE this year, we’ve had to pivot to holding a stand-alone annual meeting in Birmingham this year,” explained Board Chair Tina Williams. “Last year, if you had told me during these remarks, I’d be speaking of unprecedented difficult times, I would have said that’s impossible. The League is operating at a high level and the economy is strong. But here we are, navigating our way through the impacts of a novel virus. Despite this turmoil, I’m proud of the response of the League and our credit union community. I’ve watched you all lead with calm heads and compassion, quickly adjusting and helping members forge ahead while living the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people.’”
Other boards also held their meetings in Birmingham, including the Affiliated Consolidated Services Board, and the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation Board.
