Having been a member of Cambrian for many years, it's most encouraging to see the excellent results that Cambrian has achieved over the years and continues to achieve due to its strong management team and an effective Board of Directors.”
Over the past ten years, I have been honoured to serve Cambrian Credit Union through its Board of Directors.
