UVA Community Credit Union members approve slate of candidates to the board of directors

UVA Community Credit Union is pleased to announce the results of its election to the board of directors, which was conducted during its virtual annual meeting on June 3. Incumbents Pamela W. Higgins and Rob Walker Freer were reelected, Higgins as vice chair and Freer as secretary. In addition, Lynn Richman Bell, Michael A. Mallory, and Rob Neil were appointed as directors by credit union members. Board members serve a two-year term. 

“The credit union has been fortunate in the caliber of our board,” said Alison DeTuncq, the credit union’s president and CEO. “The guidance and leadership that our board members provide has been instrumental in our achieving the financial strength and security that we have today.” 

At its annual meeting, the credit union highlighted its financial strength — it has surpassed $1 billion in assets for the first time in its history — as well as the steps it has taken to assist members through the pandemic. “As the extent of the economic consequences of sheltering in place became evident, we expanded programs already under way, created new ones, and worked with the SBA to provide Paycheck Protection Program relief to our business members who needed it,” DeTuncq said. “We also proactively worked on an individual basis with members experiencing financial difficulties.”
