85th Annual Meeting

85TH Annual Meeting

The Hawaii Central Federal Credit Union (Hawaii Central FCU) 85th Annual Meeting was held at the Japanese Cultural Center on April 1, 2023. In addition to the official business of the meeting, Digital Banking Specialist Riza Reyes demonstrated a video banking call with Nick Gowey of CU Answers. Nick, who joined us from Las Vegas, announced the two lucky winners who walked away with $500 Hawaiian Airlines gift cards as participants in our educational activities.

We celebrated freedom to travel the globe and the digital services that keep Hawaii Central FCU with members as they “Explore the World”. Members were greeted by the Hawaii Central FCU staff who took them on a virtual trip around the world, demonstrating our digital services suite. Our digital services suite helps members who are pressed for time and have difficulty coming into the branch. The suite includes video banking, our mobile app, online banking, mobile check deposits, bill pay and pay anyone.

As evidenced by the smiling faces, hugs, and sounds of laughter, members were happy that we were able to meet in person.

There were lots of great prizes. Congratulations to Gerri S., our grand-prize winner. She took home a $1,000 Hawaiian Airlines Gift Card and a new luggage set.

Of course, we were there on official business. Interim Secretary Ariel Chun announced there were 127 members in attendance and that we had achieved quorum. Members in attendance heard from Board of Directors Chairman Neil Shimogawa.  They reviewed reports from Chairman Shimogawa and President Drake Tanabe, Treasurer Sam Aucoin, and Supervisory Committee Chairperson Blaine Hedani. The previous meeting’s minutes were also approved by the membership in attendance.

Elections were uncontested. Shimogawa was confirmed to serve another term as Chairman of the Board and Garrett Kawamura was confirmed to serve another term as Board Director.

Big Mahalo to the staff who made this event happen and, especially, Riza Reyes whose creativity and coordination, behind the scenes, made this event a big success!

WINNER: Leilani B. You Could Win, Too!

Members who make a mobile check deposit through the Hawaii Central FCU mobile app between April 1st and May 31st, 2023, will be entered to win a Samsung 55” T.V.

Each quarter in 2023, we’re giving away a prize to one lucky member just for using or enrolling in one of our products or services. In the first quarter, members who enrolled in eStatements were automatically entered to win an Ooni pizza oven. Leilani B. enrolled in eStatements last quarter and won!

Leilani has been a member of Hawaii Central FCU for nearly 30 years. When asked what keeps her at Hawaii Central FCU, Leilani talked about our service and products like our auto loan and HELOC programs she used in the past. “The rates are good,” said Leilani. “Everyone is very friendly, and they are always helpful.

Leilani is a mother of two, working as a Reservations Manager at Ala Moana Hotel. Although she prefers to come into the branch to see friendly faces like Isabel in Operations and Julie in Consumer Loans, Leilani is pressed for time with her new schedule. She often accesses her Hawaii Central FCU account through shared branching and First Hawaiian Bank ATMs located at 7-11 stores and Zippy’s restaurants. She has also started using the Mobile App to do Mobile Check Deposits.

From all of us at Hawaii Central FCU, we want to say: Congratulations Leilani!

Now, here’s your chance to win!
