Why the AGM is important

Members of our building society are our owners. So if you’re a member it’s important that you have a say in what we do. The AGM is the perfect place to do this.

You can ask members of the Board questions about any area of our work, like:

  • The type of products we sell
  • Where we might open new branches
  • Community projects that we are involved in
  • The charities we support
