Virtual but not alone: Lessons from 2 annual meetings

Honda FCU and Partners share experiences from their first online annual meetings.

Honda Federal Credit Union ($1.1B, Torrance, CA) and Partners Federal Credit Union ($2.1B, Burbank, CA) each serve a far-flung membership who work in and around production.

Partners FCU serves the workforce of The Walt Disney Company, producers of movies and memories at theme parks and studios located primarily in California and Florida.
