Accordingly as required by the bye-laws of the Cooperative and Credit Union of The Gambia Technical Training Institute; the 8th Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on 6th November 2015 on the main campus in Kanifing.
Upon arrival the distinguished guest from the National Cooperative Credit Union (NACCUG), in the person of Mr. Patrick Mendy, Finance Manager and the Senior Management Team of The Gambia Technical Training Institute (GTTI) were ushered in to sit on the high table.
Based on convention, a house keeping exercise was conducted by Mr. Patrick Mendy who confirmed a quorum which legally qualified the meeting to proceed.
Prayers were offered in both Muslim and Christian traditions invoking the presence of God Almighty for guidance during proceedings of the meeting.
In her opening remarks, the Chairperson Mrs. Bertha J. Johnson welcomed all present at the 8th AGM of the GTTI-CCU. She mentioned that the significance of the AGM cannot be over emphasised, as it provides an opportunity for every credit union member to seek clarifications and share ideas as they deem necessary. The Executive Board as the apex body of the GTTI-CCU is but custodian of the funds and managing the smooth running of the affairs of the Union. The theme of the year’s AGM celebration was “Credit Union Pathway for Economic Independence.”
Furthermore, she highlighted increase in membership of 150 in 2015 as compared to 130 in 2013 representing an increase of 15.3%. As the Union is growing in capacity, the Chairperson underscored the need for human resource for effective and timely delivery of services to members. Gently, she re-echoed to GTTI Management under her able leadership, Madam Jahou S. Faal Director General, soliciting for an office for the Cooperative Credit Union on campus.
