Shelter Federal Credit Union Annual Meeting Minutes
February 13, 2017
The 60th annual meeting of the Shelter Federal Credit Union was called to order at 7:07 p.m. on February 13, 2017, by the Credit Union President, Jacki Swank.
Jacki welcomed all members and guests to the 60th Annual Meeting of the Shelter Federal Credit Union. Jacki introduced herself as the President of Shelter Federal Credit Union and recognized former President, Urb Molitor who retired January 3, 2017. She introduced the board and committee members and thanked them for their hard work. She emphasized the good fortune of having a very stable board with minimal turnover in members and how important it is for consistent leadership. Jacki also recognized two board members who went off the board in 2016, Jim Tuley and Bruce Meentemeyer.
Jacki talked about the three committees that help the Credit Union maintain a strong financial position. The Asset Liability committee consists of six board members having the important function of measuring and managing the various risks of the Credit Union including recommending changes to our rates, dividend payments and investment policies. She listed the members on the Committee, including advisory committee member, Gary Ford, whose insight and vast knowledge is greatly appreciated. The remaining two committees that complete the governing body of the Credit Union are the Supervisory and Credit committees. She explained the Supervisory Committee oversees the various areas of compliance during the year. The Credit Committee is by far the most active, meeting twice a week to review loan requests. Jacki thanked the committee members for all they do.
She extended a special welcome to all of the retirees in attendance, in particular Terry Pauley as a charter member of the Credit Union. Keeping in tradition she recognized the past presidents Urb Molitor, Fred Pistel and Linnie Kalif in attendance. Lastly, she recognized the heart of the Credit Union, its employees and introduced them.
Jacki thanked Patty Colvin-Monning and Facilities and Services for their support in setting up the room and Bill Goings for preparing the refreshments. Jacki then turned the meeting over the Chairman of the Board, Ryan Tate. Ryan declared a quorum and thanked Jacki and the Credit Union staff for all they do. Ryan presented the minutes from the 2016 Annual Meeting and on a motion from Lyn Scrivner and a second from Erma Pauley, the minutes were approved by a voice vote of the membership.
Ryan introduced Treasurer, Lyn Scrivner, who presented the 2016 financial statements and on a motion from Terry Pauley and second from Paul LaRose the treasurer’s report was approved. A copy of the financials can be found in the Original Minutes Book.
Ryan introduced Lisa Brock, who presented the Credit Committee’s report. A copy of the report can be found in the Original Minutes Book.
Ryan introduced Brian Trenhaile, who presented the Supervisory report. A copy of the report can be found in the Original Minutes Book.
On a motion from Lyn Scrivner and a second by Paul LaRose, the Committee Reports were approved by a voice vote of membership.
Ryan re-introduced Jacki Swank to present the President’s Report.
- Jacki noted loan volume continued to increase during 2016 and the quality continued to be very good. There was a 3% increase in applications with an 87% approval rate. She noted the Credit Union will continue to keep strong amounts in our reserve in case of future losses.
- Jacki noted Credit Union CD investment rates are beginning to rise, therefore investment income should continue to increase in 2017.
- The long term investments of mortgage backed securities continue to be important to our portfolio earning good returns. In 2016 our long term investments made up about 31% of our total investment portfolio, yet they generated 49% of our investment income.
- Jacki stated she looked forward to a prosperous 2017 and thanked the membership.
Jacki concluded the meeting and turned it back over to Ryan Tate.
Ryan opened the floor to any old business and there was none.
Ryan reintroduced Treasurer Lyn Scrivner to present the 2017 budget.

Two board members also left their terms early in 2016 with replacement members, Jennifer Tade and David Van Dyke assuming their positions. All six members were on the ballot. There were no additional nominees from the floor.

Shelter Insurance Federal Credit Union Anti-Phishing Policy
WHAT IS PHISHING? In simple terms, phishing is online identity theft. Commonly, phishers send e-mail messages that appear to come from a trusted source, like a credit union, a bank, or a credit card company, and try to trick people into divulging their passwords, account numbers, or other confidential information. People fall prey to the schemes because they believe they are interacting with a company that they trust.
THE SHELTER INSURANCE FEDERAL CREDIT UNION has adopted the following email policy to combat such schemes. Our email transactions:
- will never ask members for account numbers or social security numbers
- will never include members account numbers unless authorized by member
- will never ask members to verify information via e-mail unless contact initiated by member
- will never include links to other sites
- will never include a form, or post a form which asks members to verify any information
It is the intent of the Shelter Insurance Federal Credit Union Board of Directors to have this policy distributed to the membership on a regular basis.
