Grandview Credit Union in crisis mode

By Jennifer Carniel
The Grandview Credit Union held their Annual General Meeting on April 26, 2016 with 125 members and 16 non-members present. The guest speaker slotted for the evening was Garth Manness, CEO of Credit Union Central of Manitoba, who gave a presentation on the strength and growth of Credit Unions in general.
Grandview Credit Union Board Chair, Ron Myers, called the meeting to order and asked for a motion to be made that Rob Giesbrecht, from Pitblado Law, to chair the meeting. The motion was approved and the Giesbrecht took over to Chair the meeting and discussed housekeeping guidelines as to how the meeting was to be conducted. He called to attention in particular a set of meeting rules that were published in the handouts to members and asked for a motion to be adopted to accept the rules to be used to conduct the meeting.
Ron Myers presented the Board of Directors report. “2015 has been a very interesting year for the Grandview Credit Union,” noted Myers. Grandview Credit Union’s focus is on member services, clients and technology and community involvement and the financial institution is striving to provide excellent one on one service. Myers mentioned that remote deposit was added to the list of Grandview Credit Union services in 2015 and was a very successful service. There were 782 member deposits totalling $2.4 million dollars since May using remote deposits by smart phones.
“As a small credit union, we face many challenges,” explained Myers. Low interest rates and intense competition were some of the challenges the Grandview Credit Union constantly faces.
Myers then paused and stated, “I wrote that speech a week ago and as most of you know, we have had a few issues since then and we would like to talk about them. It is very hard to talk about anything without infringing on peoples’ privacies.”


Grandview School students in K-8 collected plastic grocery bags for recycling during Earth Week (April 18-22, 2016) and participated in the Plastic Bag Grab Challenge. See more on Page 3.


Gilbert Plains hall voting results are in

“The ballot results showed renovations and an addition as the top choice (45%), the construction of a new hall second (24%), adding an addition third (22%), and taking no action at all had the lowest number of votes (9%)” explained Julie Russell, Gilbert Plains Economic Development Officer. “As far as what happens next in regards to the hall project, we will wait for approval of the budget and begin preparing to apply for grants as discussed at the public meeting. A committee will likely be appointed to head up construction planning, keeping in mind that the project is heavily reliant on our success in obtaining grants.”
