Complex Meeting IDs
Eleven digit unique meeting IDs are now in place. Meeting IDs are also removed from the content sharing window to prevent accidental sharing of meeting information.

Passwords & Password Complexity
Meeting passwords are now more complex and enabled by default for most customers, including all Basic, single-license Pro, and K-12 customers.Account owners and admins can also lock password settings, to require passwords for all meetings and webinars on their account.

Meeting Registration
Registration for meetings requires participants to register with their name and email; those registrants will then be verified by group admin using the approved attendee list.

Meeting Authentication
New features allow entry to only authenticated users, and the ability to restrict entry to specific email domains. Each registered participant will receive a unique meeting ID link and for this reason, participants are asked to not share their link publically.

Report of the Board

Chair, Alan Chell, introduced the Directors. Alan is proud of how we responded to the challenges faced during the pandemic. We rushed to support the community by funding protective equipment for the hospital and the making of hand sanitizer locally. We were able to respond to the ever-changing situation while still providing exceptional service to our members and protecting our staff. While facing lower interest rates, increased regulatory and reporting standards we remained a model for what an independent community credit union should look like. We have now reached $240M in assets, have a very healthy residential and commercial loan portfolio and our two subsidiaries, Insurance and Wealth Management are an important part of our business model. 

Alan welcomed our new CEO, Michelle Hardy who has been with RCU for 15 years. Alan noted that May 1st marks Roberta’s retirement as our CEO and credited her with the majority of our success. Her leadership since 2007 has resulted in almost a doubling of our assets while meeting or exceeding all performance standards. There is no one that knows more about the Credit Union system or cares more about their values and our community than Roberta. Alan thanked Roberta for everything she has accomplished during her career and wished her a well-deserved retirement. 

Report of the CEO

 

This marked the 40th consecutive AGM that Roberta has attended and will also be her last as CEO of RCU. In spite of the challenges of 2020, RCU fared very well in continuing to provide exceptional service to our Members, in keeping staff and the public safe all while performing well financially. Roberta thanked the Staff, Directors, and Members for their trust and support over the years. She will be leaving knowing that RCU is in good shape financially with a positive working culture, a membership that receives the highest service levels, and a community that has felt the impact of our support over the years. Roberta is happy to be passing the torch on to Michelle Hardy and watching the continued success of RCU.
