As we finally bring 2020 to a close, I want to say how proud I am of our valued members like you, our partners, and all-of the credit industry as we have proven once again, we are a resilient group. It’s an understatement to say it’s been a trying year on so many fronts for credit unions, our affiliate partners, and of course our members overall. However, as we bring in the holiday season there is so much to look forward to in 2021 as there are several promising vaccines on the horizon, thus we have more than our great accomplishments to be thankful for. 

Before closing the books on 2020, we need to take care of a little required MACUMA business by holding our Annual Meeting.  But who says we can’t have a little fun at the same time!  This year’s annual meeting will be virtual as we continue to follow pandemic protocols. However, once business is concluded, we’ll have a little holiday fun with an Ugliest Holiday Sweater Contest!  Since we can’t all be together, please see the complete details below on how to register for the Annual Meeting and enter the contest. Then grab the beverage of your choice for a little virtual socializing as we gawk at some truly ugly sweaters!  Yes, prizes will be awarded.

On behalf of the MACUMA Board I want thank you again for being a valued MACUMA member as we look forward to one final gathering in 2020 and as we all prepare for the great things we will accomplish together in 2021. I wish you the best.

Don DiMatteo
Chairman, MACUMA
