Elmer Epp of Kamloops has been re-elected as chairperson of Interior Savings Credit Union after its annual general meeting earlier this month.

Epp is an associate at the law firm of Epp Cates Oien in Kamloops, and is now beginning his 12th year as chair. He was also recently elected to the board of Central 1 Credit Union.

At Interior Savings’ AGM in Kelowna, members heard about the credit union’s 2013 financial results, recent accomplishments and plans for the upcoming year.

“Despite an uncertain global economic environment, Interior Savings enjoyed another successful year in 2012,” said Epp. “Total assets of Interior Savings exceeded the $2 billion mark, representing an asset growth of $23.9 million during the year. This achievement is attributable to careful business planning and the continued support of our members, employees, and communities.”

Since 2002, Interior Savings has returned more than $45 million to members through its rewards program. In 2012, it shared more than $3.35 million with its members through the program.

Also at the AGM, the Central/North Okanagan region saw the re-election through acclamation of incumbent directors Don Grant and Bianca Iafrancesco, each for three-year terms. Paul Neustaedter was declared elected to the board for a one-year term.

The Thompson/South Okanagan Region saw the re-election through acclamation of incumbent directors Gordon Matthews and Stephanie Teare, each for three-year terms. A special resolution to amend the credit union rules was also approved.
