Attendees heard from Board Chair, John Burke, and CEO, Todd Sheffield, who summarized the credit union’s finances, outreach and additional services our Members should expect in the near future.
Community First Members re-elected Maud Fitzpatrick and Christine Haggarty to the Supervisory Committee, as well as re-elected Arlene Colombini, Carolyn Welch, and Madelin Holtkamp to the Board of Directors. Each Board and Supervisory Committee member will serve a three-year term.
