Annual Report 2022

The Board of Directors decided not to print the Annual Report this year for posting. Instead, it will be made available on the Website for download and emailed out to members we communicate with electronically. This forms part of the Credit Union environmental awareness program. Credit Unions must take an ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) approach, meaning they explicitly consider environmental risk mitigation and ways to maximise environmental/climate-related opportunities in their strategies, planning, and metrics. It also provides a cost saving to the Credit Union concerning printing costs and postal weight charges.

Distributions 2022

The Board of Directors is not proposing a dividend or loan interest rebate this year. The continued increase in savings has increased the Credit Union’s asset size and requires the annual surplus to go to reserves. The Board introduced a monthly savings limit of €10,000 on 1st September 2022 to slow down this increase in savings. The maximum savings permitted by any member remains at €100,000 in line with the Deposit Guarantee Scheme.
