MANCHESTER CO-OPERATIVE CREDIT UNION
ANNUAL REPORT 2013
24
Mr. Lincoln Foster said that he was advocating for the AGM to be held on a different day, since there
are persons who worship on different days and would like to be able to attend the meeting. The
Chairman thanked him for his suggestion, but informed him that it was not by accident that the
meeting was being held on a Saturday as we were at a stage of embarrassment at the previous
meeting because of the low turnout of members. He said that the turnout for the meeting was
overwhelming.
Mr. Baldwin Smith suggested that something be worked out by the Credit Union for construction
workers, higglers and taxi operators for them to have a pension plan. Rev. Gardner informed him
that the League, through the Credit Union Fund Management Company had been working on
something.
Mr. Steve Nugent said that the Credit Union needed to look in the direction of having a pension plan
for self employed persons as it would be sad if another credit union came to Mandeville and capture
our members because of a pension plan, or lack thereof. The chairman said that this was something
to explore.
Miss Nicole Clarke also asked if a pension plan could be considered for early childhood teachers.
Mr. Kenneth Grant thanked the Chairman and his team for the running of a smooth meeting and
wished the retiring volunteers all the best in their retirement.
The Chairman then invited the new directors to join the others on the platform.
