Your board meets each month to look at how we are progressing against our business plan and to plan development. Some of the highlights from this evening include.
- We agreed to simplify our web presence, around the much simpler “www.ocu.coop” It reflects what we are (a co-operative) and is easier to type. The existing addresses will still work – but will connect to this domain in the background.
- We welcomed the latest management information – our total assets now stand at £649,992. We made 23 loans in December (a short month) totalling £23,150. This takes our lending to members to £346,982
- Several of us have completed data protection training – in advance of major new regulations that take effect in May this year.
- Our team answered 1,394 telephone calls in the month, helping members apply for loans, transfer funds onto pre-payment cards or just answering questions individuals might have.
