Thank you for joining us for Meridian's 2014 Annual General Meeting.
Meridian Credit Union’s 2014 Annual General
Meeting, held on April 22, 2014, at the Liberty North, 100 Caplan Avenue, Barrie, Ontario, was very successful. In excess of 115 Members and 25 Guests were in attendance, and an additional 90 joined the meeting via webcast.
We thank all of those Members who attended. It is your commitment and participation that makes a difference and leads to our success. It is what makes our credit union a unique place to do business.
At the conclusion of the AGM, a special tribute was presented to thank Sean Jackson, founding President & CEO, for his 20 years of tremendous leadership at Meridian.
As part of the heartfelt tribute, Don Ariss, Chair of Meridian’s Board of Directors, announced the creation of the Meridian’s Commitment to Communities Sean Jackson Scholarship. The annual scholarship will be awarded to one Ontario high school student who demonstrates leadership, academic excellence and community involvement. Details of the $10,000 scholarship will be available through Meridian’s website this fall with the first scholarship to be awarded in spring 2015.
In addition to the scholarship, Sean was presented with a tribute video and book chronicling his major achievements during his impressive 30 years in the Ontario credit union system. In recognition of Sean’s legacy, Meridian has established The Sean Jackson Community Room to be created in the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre located in St. Catharines.
