Virtual Event FAQ's
Will there be a location for the Annual Meeting?

What is Zoom?
Zoom is a video communication platform that allows individuals to connect in a virtual space using audio and video capabilities.
Do I need to register or sign up to attend the Annual Meeting?
Yes; however, registration can be done in advance or up until 11:59 pm CT on Tuesday, October 20, 2020. No registrations on Wednesday, October 21st prior to the meeting starting can be guaranteed to be approved before the meeting begins at 1:00 CT. Preregistration is NOT a commitment to attend. To ensure our virtual Annual Meeting provides the best experience for those attending, we ask that you register to receive direct links and information to access our secure Zoom Virtual Meeting Space.
Please note, your registration confirmation email will not come immediately after you submit your Annual Meeting registration. As the Annual Meeting is a member-only event, all registrations are reviewed by Family Savings CU before registration confirmations are manually sent to members.
What if more than one person in my household is a member of the credit union?
If more than one member in the household will be attending the Annual Meeting, please register each member individually. You do not need to log in separately to view and attend the Annual Meeting.
Will I have to purchase or download anything?
There is no Zoom software purchase necessary to participate in the Annual Meeting and you do not need to create an account with Zoom to participate in the Annual Meeting. If you choose to participate in the Annual Meeting using your computer, tablet, or smartphone, you may be prompted to download the Zoom software to view the video feed from the Annual Meeting.
If you choose not to download the Zoom software, you can still participate in the Annual Meeting using the ‘For Telephone,’ directions provided when you receive your registration confirmation email. These instructions provide dial-in phone numbers that can be called from a landline or cellular device.
