At East Coast Credit Union you are an owner. What does that mean?
When you are a member of a credit union, you own part of the business. Each member has the ability to have a say in how the Credit Union operates. How can I do this, you ask? If you are 19 years of age, you can vote at our Annual General Meetings on important banking decisions that affect you. Not 19 yet? Well, you can voice your opinion and influence youth programs by joining our youth committee. Ask your branch representative how you can get involved.
