The Supervisory Committee Report was presented as written in the Annual Report by Larissa Kebuz, Member of the Supervisory Committee.

For the fourth year, students (grades 10 and 11) from the Ukrainian Heritage School (Ukrainian Saturday School) joined the meeting to learn more about how the credit union works operates in the financial sector and within the Ukrainian-American community in the greater Philadelphia area. Furthermore, the students participated in a focus group with the UKRFCU’s Marketing Department and engaged in discussion on personal finance needs and wants and got a firsthand look at UKRFCU’s new website.

Three board members were reelected to three-year terms: Roman Petyk, Mary Kolodij, and Anna Lewicky. Following the meeting, the Board of Directors held their organizational meeting. There were no changes to the make-up of the Board.
