I am Margaret Day, Assiniboine Credit Union’s newly elected Chair of the Board of Directors and I am excited to welcome you to our new blog site, asterisk.
As asterisk moves into the age of online communication, change continues to happen at ACU as well. I assumed my new position in April, immediately after our Annual General Meeting. I want to take this opportunity to thank Garry Loewen, previous board Chair, for his dedication and long term commitment in leading ACU. I also want to welcome Alain Molgat back to the board.
My first few months in this role were spent moving from the role of Vice-Chair and adapting to the responsibilities of Chair. I am very proud to be part of a vibrant and committed board; it makes my job easier with an experienced board and executive management supporting me around the boardroom table.
As Chair of the board, I am committed to governance that ensures that we provide financial services for the betterment of our members, our employees and our communities. For me the role means a commitment to listening to our members, working closely with our community partners and demonstrating responsible leadership in our governance. We plan on telling many of these stories, right here on asterisk.
I hope you enjoy these stories and that you are as inspired by them as I am.
