Did you know that Scenic Community Credit Union is owned by the members? We benefit when our members engage and participate in their ownership.
That’s why we are inviting you to attend our Annual Meeting for 2023!
Save the date!
March 23, 2023 | 6 p.m. | The Gathering | 4445 Hixson Pike, Hixson TN 37343
Please join us for a pot roast and roast chicken dinner provided through Apple Spice, door prizes, drawings for three grand prizes, and to hear about the Credit Union’s highlights from 2022.
Why should you come?
At our Annual Meeting, we will be electing a volunteer-based Board of Directors. These directors make decisions about short- and long-term directions of the Credit Union with our members in mind.
Members are encouraged to come because the information being shared impacts dividends paid, rates received, products offered, as well as member’s financial expectations – all things that impact YOU!
Why should I attend the annual meeting?
You'll be able to connect with SCCU board members and staff. We'll look back at what we accomplished in 2022 and let you know what's coming up this year, and we'll have elections for any open board positions. This is a great opportunity to make your voice heard - we welcome your opinion and want to hear from you!
Who can vote?
SCCU members who are 1) the primary (first name) on their account, 2) in good standing with the credit union, and 3) are at least 18 years of age may vote on credit union issues. We encourage you to make your voice heard!
Why do credit unions have annual meetings?
Banks and credit unions offer similar services, but are structured very differently. Banks are owned and run by shareholders, and profits are returned to the shareholders, who may or may not be customers of the bank. In contrast, credit unions are not-for-profit and owned by their members, which means members get a say in how credit unions are run. Annual meetings are the predominant way credit union members make their voices heard. It's a time of fellowship, but also a time for business, as we go over the state of the credit union and vote on board members and other issues.
How can I serve at the credit union?
SCCU is run by a 5-member board and various committees, all of whom are volunteers from the membership. If you are interested in volunteering at SCCU, give us a call at (423) 875-6955 for more info, or send a brief resume to the address below.
