Member pops question at annual meeting CEO says yes
PORT HURON, Mich. (5/12/09)--It was all business at E&A CU's annual meeting May 4, but the conclusion brought a surprise and some happy drama to the Port Huron, Mich.-based credit union's meeting.

Board Chairman Tom Wik and President/CEO Jan Rose had opened the meeting with statements about the condition of the $170 million asset credit union. Board elections saw Kathleen Bennett, Deborah Turnbull and Donna Kalmeta re-elected to the board, according to the Michigan Credit Union League (Michigan Monitor May 11). As the meeting came to a close, member Norm Krol asked Rose how she felt about mergers. "We evaluate merger and partnership opportunities on an individual basis and reflect on the merits of each situation," answered Rose. Krol then asked if Rose would agree to a merger on a personal level--with him--and he proposed marriage. Rose agreed, and "the meeting ended with thunderous applause."
