May 15, 2020

LGFCU held its 2020 Annual Meeting on May 15, in what marked the Credit Union’s first-ever virtual meeting.

Members participating in the livestream event had the opportunity to vote and to submit questions for Chief Executive Officer Maurice Smith.

Board officers and volunteer committee chairs provided reports on LGFCU’s performance in 2019. Smith delivered the state of the Credit Union address, noting the relevance of the Credit Union during the current pandemic climate, and pledging its continued service to members across North Carolina.

“We’ve been through disruptions in the economy before,” Smith said, citing his 40-plus years of experience in the credit union industry. “Through it all, your Credit Union has thrived. Now, you’re counting on us to have the services you need and to be there for you.

“We will continue to serve you, and to look for new ways and opportunities to serve you in the future,” he said. “Look beyond our numbers, to the stories they tell. Everything we do is focused on people. We were built for these times.”

Board members elected to serve

As part of the Annual Meeting, the LGFCU Board of Directors voted Lin Jones of Durham to serve as board chair for a two-year term. Also, the following board members were re-elected to serve three-year terms:

  • Ken Noland of Wilkesboro, Vice Chair
  • Ruth Barnes of Atlantic Beach, Secretary
  • Jeanne Erwin of Cary, Treasurer

A recorded version of the Annual Meeting will be available in June. To read more now about the fiscal health of LGFCU and the Credit Union’s impact on communities across North Carolina, see the 2019 Annual Report.
