Why does my statement insert say Annual Meeting is at a different time?
You may have received an insert with your statement, announcing the Annual Meeting and providing additional information, that states a different start time. This insert had to be printed and provided to our statement distributor before Annual Meeting details were finalized. The Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, March 25 and start at 6:00 pm. The best place for up-to-date information on credit union events, activities, products, and services will always be mymembersfirst.org.
