It was far from business as usual at the Barbados Public Workers’ Co-operative Credit Union Limited (BPWCCUL) today as members were celebrated for their continued participation and commitment.
The Belmont Road branch of BPWCCUL held its annual Member Appreciation Day with activities geared towards acknowledging their importance to the union.
Speaking with Barbados TODAY, Branch Operations Officer Michelle Ashby stated that member appreciation days are held by all five branches as a means of recognising the loyalty of its now over 80,000 members.
“They really appreciate the fact that we try to make an effort to give back and it’s also an opportunity to engage them and just say thank you and let them know that their business matters to us,” Ashby said.
She noted that throughout the year, the union seeks to invest in its members by providing beneficial services, especially for the youth. It continues to maintain and find ways to improve its services and convenience for the members.
“In this economic climate when people are losing their jobs and such, we try to work with our members to ensure that they can meet their obligations to us and that they don’t have to feel afraid… about their financial future. We try to work with them to help them achieve their goals,” she said.
Mini massages, temporary tattoos, games, health checks and a photo booth were among the day’s activities. Members were also serenaded by Calypsonian Colin Spencer and Soca artiste Anderson Blood Armstrong. (KW)
