2015 Board of Directors Election Results

East Coast Credit Union held its fourth Annual General Meeting on April 21, 2015. To accommodate our members, we hosted our meeting through a live simulcast at two separate locations. Members and guests were able to attend the annual meeting at the NSCC Strait Campus in Port Hawkesbury and the NSCC Waterfront Campus in Dartmouth. 

During the business meeting, highlights of 2014 were shared, the 2014 financial statement was reviewed and our in-branch voting results for our Board of Directors was released.

We have 12 Board member positions and this year four of the positions were up for re-election. Six candidates presented themselves as nominees. Four directors reoffered and two new candidates applied for these vacancies. We would like to thank the six nominees who submitted their application and expressed interest in serving on our credit union board of directors.  

Thank you to all of our members who participated in our in-branch voting process and who joined us at our annual meeting this year.  

Congratulations to our four successful candidates who will serve on our Board of Directors: 

  • Trevor Boudreau 
  • Ethel Chisholm
  • Daniel Fougere
  • Melanie Sampson
