FAQ’s

  • Why did you change the location of the annual meeting?

We want to encourage more direct engagement between members and WECU’s Senior Leadership Team and Volunteers. The prior meeting space, a large ballroom at the Four Points Sheraton, did not allow for this more casual, personal and organic engagement with our members.

  • Why don’t you need my entrée order?

The meeting format this year is reception style as opposed to a sit-down meal. There will be cocktail tables in abundance around the room (and limited traditional seating). Heavy hors d’oeuvres and dessert will be served instead of a plated dinner. Each member will also receive a drink ticket for a beverage of their choice.

  • Is there a cost to attend?

There is no cost to the member.

  • Where do I park?

There is a large free parking garage located at 11 Bellwether Way.

  1. Turn on Bellwether Way
  2. Proceed past the WECU administrative building
  3. Turn right at the stop sign (as if you are going to Anthony’s Hearthfire)
  4. Take an immediate left into the parking garage.
  • Will there be a formal dinner?

No. As noted the meeting format this year is reception style as opposed to a sit-down meal.

  • Who can attend?

Any WECU member who is 18 years or older, in good standing with the credit union, and has been a WECU member for 6 months or more can attend. Non-members will not be allowed to attend. Members must RSVP to attend.

  • Will there be a raffle?

Yes.

  • Will there be gift bags for members?

Yes.
