The opening session commenced with the invocation by a member of the Board of Directors, Rev. Joseph Edmeade followed by the recital of the Credit Union s Prayer by the members. CHAIRMAN S OPENING REMARKS Chairman Lawrence first acknowledged persons at the head table namely, President Ernest Pistana, the Guest Speaker Mr. Melvin Edwards, Rev.

He further recognized in the audience Mr. Peter Etienne of the Caribbean Confederation of Credit Unions, Mr. Othniel Heyliger and Mrs. Sheryl Bass, President and General Manager of the St. Kitts Co-operative Credit Union, Mr. Mario Wigley, Manager of the Police Credit Union and Mr. Clyde Thompson, Acting Registrar of Cooperatives. He then welcomed members to the 1 st Annual General Meeting of the FND Credit Union which was held under the theme: Growing from a Sound Foundation. He reminded the membership that the focus of the evening was on the Credit Union s operations for the first five months, notwithstanding that this meeting was recognized as our 1 st Annual General Meeting. He suggested that the first five months of operation was used as a learning experience and thanked the Board of Directors, Committee Members and Staff of the Credit Union for the successes that were achieved during the period under review. He then called on the President, Mr. Ernest Pistana to make some opening remarks. PRESIDENT S OPENING REMARKS The President, in his opening remarks, commented on how quickly time had passed, stating that it was almost a year since he was elected. He then pointed out that the FNDECCU was in transition from a lending institution to a deposit taking organization. He remarked that transitions were never smooth, but with commitment, mutual respect, openness of mind and a willingness to succeed we will overcome all obstacles. He encouraged members to invest in more shares, open accounts for their children and grandchildren and develop a habit to make regular deposits. He reminded members that the Credit Union s principle is people helping people and is based primarily on thrift. PG 7 Minutes of 1 st Annual General Meeting In concluding his remarks, he indicated that the Organization had made an impressive progression by advancing from a semi electronic system to a fully computerized system, accessible to both offices in St. Kitts and Nevis. He commended the staff members for their long hours and hard work to achieve that high level of success in the conversion of the records system. That process, he said, required detailed preparation prior to installation, ongoing training and post installation activities. He emphasized that security was of utmost importance, stating that security of staff members, security of members using our services and security of other assets will be in focus at all times. GUEST SPEAKER Mr. James Webbe, General Manager, introduced the Guest Speaker Mr. Melvin Edwards, highlighting his sterling contribution to the development of the Credit Union Movement in his homeland St. Kitts, the Caribbean region and worldwide. He also praised him in particular for the significant role he played in the development of the Foundation for National Development and the conversion of that institution into the FND Enterprise Co-operative Credit Union Ltd. Mr. Edwards began his presentation by revealing that he is a member of two Credit Unions on St. Kitts and he encouraged every Kittitian and Nevisian to think about doing the same. He spoke about the importance of being a member of a Credit Union, emphasizing that the members are the owners and should be fully involved in the operation of the organization. He suggested that Credit Unions bring financial inclusion to the financial services sector and that is why in times of economic challenge, credit unions are a good choice. He further suggested that Credit Unions are designed for the best and worst of times but operate best in the worst of times, if done right. Mr. Edwards spoke about insurance products offered by CUNA Mutual Group specifically tailored for Credit Unions. He suggested that the FND Credit Union must make use of these products for the benefits of the members. The Guest Speaker advocated that the Credit Unions also have a major role to play in the development of the youth. He told the gathering that the Credit Union can assist in addressing these issues by organizing forums for training in public speaking and other disciplines to assist them in conducting themselves in formal and informal situations. He further suggested that at this point in time the four Credit Unions should work together to ensure that financial services for their members, in particular, the youth, can be affordable especially on the eve of VAT which is on our door steps. He stressed the importance of educating members about the By-laws of the Credit Union and encouraged members to continue to purchase shares with a view to growing the capital base of the organization, and also highlighted the controls and balances included in Cooperative Act and By-laws. He spoke about the obligations and qualifications of the members and officers and also stressed that the operations of the Credit Union must always be in the interest of the members. PG 8 Minutes of 1 st Annual General Meeting Mr. Edwards encouraged the members to adopt both the Vision and Mission statements of the FND Credit Union and encouraged them to support the investments of the Credit Union to strengthen more lives in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis.
