Supervisory Committee Verification Notice
The Supervisory Committee has engaged Mckeever, Varga & Senko Certified Public Accountants, to complete the regular verification of accounts with the December 31, 2017 member statements. This process will be slightly differ- ent from years past when all member statements contained a notice from the Supervisory Committee. Instead, the auditors will select a sample of members share and loan accounts to verify the account balances directly with account owner by letter. If your account has been selected as part of the auditing process, you will receive a letter within the next few weeks from Mckeever, Varga & Senko requesting information on a designated account. The CPAs will not ask you to provide them with personal or account information, they will only ask you to verify that the information and account balance they provide to you is correct. We appreciate your participation in this process.
Danny Reynolds, Supervisory Committee Chairman
