2019 Board of Directors Election Results

East Coast Credit Union held its Annual General Meeting on April 16, 2019. The meeting took place at the Ashburn Golf Club (Old Course), 3250 Joseph Howe Drive in Halifax. To accommodate our members, we also hosted our meeting through Livestream and a link to a recording of the meeting can be found here:

During the business meeting, highlights of 2018 were shared, along with the 2018 Financial Statement, and our Board of Directors election results were released.

We have 12 Board member positions, and this year, five of those positions were up for re-election. Eight candidates presented themselves as nominees. We would like to thank all the nominees who submitted their application and expressed interest in serving on our Board of Directors.

Thank you to all our members who participated in our electronic in-branch and online voting process and who joined us at our Annual General Meeting this year.
