Report of the Board

2021 was both a challenging and rewarding year. The continuation of the global pandemic saw the need for us to continually adapt to ensure we provided service in a safe and effective manner. We were very pleased to see the high demand for our lending department to assist people with both mortgages and funds for home renovations. It’s great to see the money invested in our community.  The increasing concern about cyber security affected RCU and we have increased our capability to protect the assets of members.

2021 was also a year of change. In May, we welcomed Michelle Hardy as our new CEO. Michelle had continually excelled at taking on additional leadership responsibilities with RCU, is highly respected through the Credit Union Young Leaders Program and we look forward to her leading RCU into the future.

At the same time, the Board expressed our appreciation and gratitude to the leadership provided by our retiring CEO, Roberta Bobicki. Roberta made a real difference to RCU and should take pride in looking back on an outstanding career.

While change is always a part of our lives, RCU remains committed to serving our members and our community.

Report of the CEO

 

Michelle started by thanking our members for trusting us with their financial wellbeing and also thanked our employees for showing up every day to support each other and provide members with knowledgeable service and advice. A special thank you to our Board of Directors for their expertise and support during a year of transition.

2021 was a strong financial year with assets growing to $255.6M and a consolidated net income of $1.1M. We contributed $200K to Member Rewards, and a total of $125K through Community Giving and Capital Projects. Our strong financial results allowed us to increase Member Rewards by $50K and Community Giving by $25K. These programs are our way of sharing our success with our valued members and community.

In 2021 we enhanced digital security to increase our capability to protect the assets of members. Their patience and grace during this transition is appreciated as these are important steps in providing safe digital services. We will continue to enhance our digital offerings to meet members needs and improve our services. We are also growing our advisory services and sharing more financial literacy resources.

We look forward to continuing to be recognized as a resilient, responsible community partner and organization focused on service excellence for our members.
