Information on how you can have your say

The Credit Union Difference

Hoot Credit Union is a member-owned co-operative dedicated to serve our members.

As a democratic, co-operative organisation our members are the shareholders and their interests come first. Profits are shared amongst the members, not fat-cat city investors. Members elect the Board of Directors to represent members’ interests. The Board report back to members at the annual general meeting.

AGM
Our AGM is your opportunity to have your say. It’s where you can vote for our board members and help with other key decisions that make a real difference to Hoot Credit Union and our members.
You can hear about what we have been doing in the past year and find out about the financial accounts. You can also elect the Board of Directors – your representatives. 

Each Member of the credit union has one vote irrespective of the amount of savings they have in the credit union.

Board of Directors

The Board of directors determines the future direction of the credit union on behalf of the members. It plans targets and regularly evaluates progress towards achieving these targets. All Directors are volunteers. Although directors do not receive any payment for their services to the credit union, reasonable travel expenses will be paid. The Hoot Board has a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 11 directors elected by the membership by the members at the Annual General Meeting, normally for a term of three years. If you are interested in seeking nomination for the board you should read this information and complete a nomination form. The dates for nominations are included in the AGM notice each year.
