The East Kootenay Credit Union (EKC) Community Cash finalists will be displaying to promote their initiative at EKC’s Annual General Meeting.
Investing will start at 6 p.m. with the meeting starting at 7 p.m. Guests are encouraged to stay for the presentation of the winner around 8pm.
At the AGM, members, non-members, and youth will receive EKC Community Cash to ‘invest’ with one or more of the community groups of their choice. Elk Valley members will receive $40, Cranbrook members will receive $50, non-members will receive $20, and all youth (18 and under) will receive $10.
Each of the groups will receive $500 for attending the AGM as well as the real cash equivalent to the Community Cash they accumulate throughout the event. The group who receives the most Community Cash will also receive an additional $500 in funding.
CEO Jody Burk adds, “We’re excited that this process provides a fun and inclusive way to involve both EKC members as well as local youth and the community in selecting the Community Cash Awards recipients.”
During the meeting portion of the event a children’s movie will be shown in another room. Popcorn and limited supervision will be provided. Additional supervision by parents and or caregivers may be required. After the meeting, all guests are invited back for the announcement of the winner of the Community Cash Awards.
It’s important to note that members, non-members, supporters and youth who wish to participate in investing ‘Community Cash’ must RSVP that they will attend the AGM by April 12 to Pam Pinch (info below).
