This year’s meeting was a big success!
At our 2020 Annual Meeting, we focused on how to elevate our work in building financial equity and opportunity for our members. Members got a chance to hear reports from our officers, meet the Board and staff, and put their names in the running for cash prizes.
Board of Directors
Congratulations to our our directors who were re-elected for another three-year term: Mike Beall, Charlotte Ducksworth, Delvia Lewis, and Leroy Proctor.
Over 150 members registered to participate, and five members were each awarded $100, deposited directly to their DC Credit Union savings accounts!
A huge shoutout to the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) for its support and to President and CEO, Renée Sattiewhite, for her remarks.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Financial equity is a right, not a privilege. Our 2020 Annual Membership Meeting will elevate our ongoing efforts to create economic opportunity for members from all backgrounds and walks of life. DC Credit Union was born from a need to offer access to financial services, specifically credit, for African Americans in the 1950s. Over 60 years later, we continue to work toward our vision of economic justice for the financially underserved.
Without equitable access to financial services, we cannot have an equitable economy. Our areas of focus include:
- Human Talent: We are committed to ensuring that our staff is representative of the people we serve
- Products/Services: We focus on equitable lending practices and innovative products that can help families stay in their homes and build/transfer wealth.
- Community Collaboration & Engagement: This includes outreach to the LGBTQ community, financial education for youth and young adults, and building awareness around predatory lending practices.
