We are looking forward to telling you about our continuing success in bringing ethical savings and affordable credit to more and more people in our local areas, and about exciting plans to transform how we deliver services.
As a member’s co-operative, we value and welcome your views and involvement. Everyone attending the AGM is welcome to speak and ask questions of Board members during the meeting.

Your annual statement for each account you hold with us is available online via our members area or the Swan Community Bank App
If you would like to join the Board, we warmly invite you to spend some time with us as a volunteer, assisting existing board members. This means that you can see what the role involves and decide whether it suits your skills and the time you have available. Our outgoing Secretary volunteered before joining and found it incredibly useful to help her understand what she could bring to the team before she put herself forward for election. If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer or prospective board member please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would particularly welcome women and ethnic minority candidates, and those with business leadership experience. Members wishing to stand for election to the Board or Supervisory Committee at the AGM should inform the Secretary in writing by 12th March, including details for the two members proposing and seconding your application.
We also need members to stand for our supervisory (internal audit) committee. You do not need to be a qualified auditor or accountant to take on this role. Please get in touch at email@example.com if you would like to find out more.
Chair, Swan Credit Union
