The conference exhibit hall was sold out with 20 exhibitors. Five vendors participated for the first time.

AVCU Board members Bob Morgan, North Country FCU, South Burlington, and Jim St. Peter, New England FCU, Williston, were elected by acclamation to three-year terms.

A bylaw amendment proposed by the board was passed by a voice vote. It would:

  • Allow for meetings and/or votes of the AVCU membership to be conducted through modern technological means whereby participants may be aware of comments by others, visually or audibly.  Voting electronically would be permissible when appropriate safeguards ensuring the integrity of the process are in place;
  • Create an associate membership category that carries no voting or right to hold office; and
  • Make housekeeping changes replace outdated bylaw provisions that were no longer relevant.
