TCU’s 69th Annual Meeting

As a member-owned, member-focused organization, our priority is the well-being of our members, staff, and volunteer officials. We decided to move the scheduled April 23, 2020 Annual Meeting online, to avoid a large gathering in a confined space.

Our first-ever online Annual Meeting included much-needed good news. Board Chair Pat Moreno and CEO Barry Nelson shared that TCU’s financial performance in 2019 exceeded 2018’s, and several thousand more people became members of our credit union! They also explained how we’ve supported our members during the difficult times of the pandemic.

Two members were elected to full, 3-year terms of their own after filling in the remainder of the terms of two board seats vacant since January:
