Credit Union Events
2018 Youth Month
Every child dreams about their future. Some of those dreams may require money to come true. How do you help your children achieve their dreams? One way is to help them learn how to save their money! With this year’s National Credit Union Youth Month, MCWV is encouraging young credit union members to picture themselves in the future and develop good financial habits.
Every member under the age of 18 who makes a deposit into their MCWV account(s) during the month of April will earn a spin on the Wheel of Future Fun! Those deposits, as well as any deposit made into a youth account by a parent or guardian, earn an entry into a drawing for a chance to win one $100 deposit to be made by MCWV, and one $1,000 grand prize from CUNA.
The theme this year is “The Science of Saving,” showcasing fun, sci-fi-inspired characters. Science has proven that if you start with small goals, saving your money can become a regular habit. This year’s Youth Month inspires children to begin saving the money they earn so they can attain their dreams of a happy future.
76th Annual Meeting
The 76th Members Choice WV FCU’s Annual Meeting was held on Friday, March 23, 2018. We had a great time with a photo booth, a great dinner, our business meeting and over $4,000 in cash prizes for our members!
Credit unions are owned and controlled by their members, which means “one member, one vote”. We hold an Annual Meeting every year for our members to exercise their democratic member control when an election is held for our volunteer Board of Directors. The Annual Meeting is also an opportunity to learn about financial standings, and to address any concerns or questions you may have, of your credit union.
Plan on attending our 77th Annual Meeting next year!
