This year, we’re thankful for our Dupaco members who helped grow the credit union by saving, borrowing and planning for the future.
At a financial cooperative like Dupaco, you’re not just a member—you’re an owner. And the more you participate in your credit union, the more all members benefit.
You’re invited to the 72nd Annual Dupaco Membership Meeting at 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be your credit union’s first annual meeting held virtually.
Here’s what you need to know to participate in the meeting and vote for your volunteer board of directors this year.
How to attend
During the membership meeting, you’ll hear from your credit union’s leadership team and board of directors and learn how Dupaco is performing.
You can register for the virtual event at dupaco.com/MemberMeeting. We’ll then email you the details on how to attend virtually.
If you register by noon CT Feb. 17, you’ll also be entered for a chance to win prizes during the meeting.
How to vote
The annual meeting has typically been the official forum for annual board elections. This year, you’ll instead vote at a Dupaco branch in advance of the virtual meeting. You’ll be able to vote in-branch or through the drive-up.
Voting is open to all Dupaco members who are 16 or older. You can stop by any Dupaco branch between Feb. 8–10 to receive a ballot and cast your vote. All Dupaco branches will have ballot boxes.
