Message from the CEO

Stan Abrams and new Member of the Board of Directors, Stephanie Rose, at the 4th Annual Women In Blue Luncheon held on March 5, 2014.

A Unique Distinction Between Credit Unions and Others.

One of the important and unique distinctions between credit unions and other financial institutions is the fact that the members of both the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee are volunteers, democratically elected by fellow members, and receive no salary or compensation for the time and efforts they contribute to the good of the entire membership.

Good news! Volunteerism is alive and thriving here at METRO. Nowhere was the spirit of volunteerism more apparent than at our recent 79th Annual Meeting of the Membership, held on May 27, 2014. While we have said goodbye to two of our members of the Board of Directors earlier in May – Mike Rich and Dominick Boccia (see related tributehere) - METRO welcomed two new long-time members to our Board of Directors: Miguel Rosario and Stephanie Rose - who were elected to the Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting. Miguel was a former member of the Supervisory Committee.

Two new members were elected to the Supervisory Committee at the Annual Meeting – June Dudas and Donna Hayward, also long-time members of this Credit Union.

On behalf of the current Board of Directors, Supervisory Committee and staff, I want to personally recognize and thank all of our volunteers who step up to the plate and selflessly devote countless hours for the good of the entire membership. It is my honor, and that of the staff, to work with such dedicated individuals who put the concerns of the members before their own priorities.

Stan Abrams
President / Chief Executive Officer
