Due to lack of quorum at the originally scheduled annual meeting, Kelly Community Federal Credit Union will now hold its 55th Annual Business Meeting on Thursday, April 26, 2018. The purpose of the meeting is to present the 2017 business reports and to elect board members for the three expiring terms. Per the credit union’s bylaws, a nominating committee appointed by the Chairman of the Board of Directors, has nominated the following individuals to fill each of the three-year terms that are expiring: Howard Harris, Tom McKay, and A.D. Robertson.
Howard Harris is an incumbent board member with 40 years of credit union experience. Mr. Harris studied accounting in college and worked in the Kelly-Springfield Tire Company accounting department for 26 years. Upon his retirement from the plant, he had worked for Kelly-Springfield for 36 years. During his time serving on the Board of Directors for Kelly Community , Mr. Harris has actively pursued further credit union education and has been involved in the direction and growth we have experienced over the past three decades.
Tom McKay started work for the Kelly-Springfield Tire company in 1973, and upon retirement had worked at the Tyler plant for 33 years. Mr. McKay is an incumbent board member that has served on the Kelly Community Federal Credit Union Board of Directors for 39 years serving in various roles as needed. Mr. McKay is currently serving as the Treasurer of the Board. His experience as a board member affords him a breadth of knowledge that has been key in his leadership over the years.
