Caisse holds an­nual meet­ing

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

On April 23rd, the di­rec­tors, man­agers and vol­un­teers of Es­couade D of the Caisse Des­jardins de Lac-Mem­phrem­a­gog re­ceived 150 mem­bers at the An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing which was held at La Ruche high school. Re­gard­ing the re­sults of 2012, the op­er­at­ing sur­plus rose to $6.5 mil­lion while the vol­ume of busi­ness rose by 4.4%. Thanks to th­ese sur­pluses, the Caisse will pay out $1.55 mil­lion in in­di­vid­ual re­turns to its mem­bers.

Be­sides the in­di­vid­ual re­turns, the mem­bers adopted by a ma­jor­ity the rec­om­men­da­tion of the Board of Di­rec­tors to pay out $450,000 to the fonds d’aide au de­vel­oppe­ment du mi­lieu. Th­ese funds al­low the Caisse to sup­port projects just get­ting started which aim to con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of the com­mu­nity, cre­ate jobs, put in place or main­tain lo­cal ser­vices, and bring new so­cio-eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties to the re­gion.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, the mem­bers elected Therese Gaulin (Stanstead) and re-elected Lu­cie Les­sard onto the Su­per­vi­sory Board. Louise Fel­ton and Re­nald Couture were re-elected to the Board of Di­rec­tors while, elected for the first time, were An­dree-Ni­cole Blouin (Ste-Cather­ine de Hat­ley), Nathalie Fer­land (Stanstead), Marie-Pier Hinse, Michel Lafleur, Suzie Nadeau (East­man), and Jeremy Stairs (Stanstead).

This 12th gen­eral assem­bly was also an oc­ca­sion to warmly wel­come all the mem­bers of the for­mer Caisse Des­jardins de Stanstead, merged with the Caisse Des­jardins de Lac-Mem­phrem­a­gog since the be­gin­ning of Jan­uary, 2013.
