Invitation to our 2021 AGM

Williams Lake and District Credit Union 68th Annual General Meeting

Williams Lake and District Credit Union hosts an Annual General Meeting (AGM) to update members on the results and outcomes of the prior year, while also providing an opportunity to have any questions answered.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we've decided to host a virtual AGM in 2021.

Utilizing a virtual platform allows us to deliver our AGM safely and in compliance with public health directives, while still attending to the business of the Credit Union and providing an opportunity to have your questions answered. While we'd prefer to host the AGM in-person, we're excited that the virtual platform allows increased accessibility for our members who may not reside in or wish to travel to Williams Lake to attend the meeting. 

Please carefully review the details outlined below and rest assured that Credit Union staff are able to help should you have any questions or concerns in the days leading up to the AGM.

You're invited!

Please join us from the comfort
of your home or office on

Technology

To minimize potential technology issues on the date of the meeting, please test your Microsoft Teams meeting link as soon as you receive it. Microsoft Teams can be used on many devices including smartphones, tablets, PC and Mac. If joining on a computer, using the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge web browser will allow you to join the meeting in your web browser without having to download the Microsoft Teams application. If joining on a smartphone or tablet, you will need to install the Microsoft Teams app from your app store. More information on installing the application and joining the meeting can be found here.

Don't have a computer?

If you do not have the ability to join the meeting with a computer or mobile device, you may join by telephone conference. Please note if joining by telephone, you cannot participate in voting. If you'd prefer to listen by telephone conference, select "Telephone" during the registration process and one of our employees will be in contact to provide you the necessary details.
