Annual Meeting 2024
Notice is hereby given that the Members’ Annual Meeting of Marquette Community Federal Credit Union will be held at the Ramada Inn, Marquette, MI 49855 on Thursday, March 21st, 2024 at 7:00 pm for the purpose of electing directors of the Credit Union and transacting other such business as may properly come before the meeting. Members of the credit union are urged to attend. The officers will report on the activities of your Credit Union for the past year, including reviews of financial results and audits.
The bylaws authorize a nine member Board of Directors to be responsible for the control and operation of your Credit Union. A full board term is three years. Position openings alternate so that no more than three regular terms end in any year. This provides continuity of the board.
Chairman Thomas Meravi appointed the following to serve on the nominating committee: Phil Joffee, Randy Girard, and Garry Tollefson. The committee will present a slate of candidates at the annual meeting for the three open three year positions.
Nominations will not be accepted from the floor during the meeting. Any member interested in running for the board may submit a written petition indicating the name of the person to be nominated. This petition must be signed by twenty members of this credit union and accompanied by a letter from the person to be nominated indicating his or her willingness to serve if elected. Each nominee by petition must submit a statement of qualifications and biographical data with the petition. All such nominations must be completed and received by the Board Secretary, Connie Williams, by February 12, 2024. No names may be placed in nomination for any vacancy for which elections are being held except as provided above or by the nominating committee.
The mission of your credit union is to foster the financial foundation of our members by providing programs and services that will enhance their ability to successfully meet the demands of today's marketplace in a manner unique to any other available. The uniqueness shall be accomplished through unmatched service and world-class courtesy.

About Credit Unions
Shared Ownership... As a member of Marquette Community Federal Credit Union, you own a "SHARE" in your Credit Union. You vote for your Board of Directors. And, you share in the success of your organization. As a non-profit organization, all Credit Union earnings are returned to members in the form of dividends or other benefits after expenses and legal reserves.
Strong Common Bond... Your Credit Union is a cooperative. Our field of membership includes all people working or living in Marquette County and their immediate families. These are people you work and live near. Friends who share your interest in making the Credit Union their primary financial center.
Brighten Your Future... As an active saver at your Credit Union, you help yourself, your neighbors and co-workers to a future bright with possibilities. When you save, those dollars form a reserve from which you and other members can draw upon when the need arises. That idea of people helping people builds the cooperative spirit that is your credit union. Help yourself and your fellow members to a brighter future... get the savings habit.
