2019 Annual Report – Now Available
To our Valued Policyholders, Employees and Neighbours,
I hope and trust that you are all well and staying safe.
We have released our 2019 Annual Report, typically published at the time of our Annual General Meeting. However, given the current situation we are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have postponed our Annual General Meeting to a date yet to be determined.
As we expect social distancing protocols to remain in place for the foreseeable future, we are working on a solution to hold our Annual General Meeting using video conferencing technology. Any announcements regarding the details of any such meeting will be shared here on our website.
During this time, we want to assure you that Red River Mutual remains committed to respecting the recommendations of the federal and provincial health authorities by continuing to do business with a remote workforce. While it is not quite business as usual, our organization has moved from a phase of ensuring our people are safe and able to function remotely, to a phase in which we are able to resume a number of projects while working from home.
The Governance and Nominations Committee of Red River Mutual’s Board of Directors works diligently to ensure that our Board has diverse representation in the competencies needed to advise and guide the direction of our company. At the start of our governance cycle – which is typically marked by our Annual General Meeting – there were two director vacancies on the Board. We extend our appreciation to Heidi Reimer-Epp and John Unger for their excellent contribution to our company as they step down from the Board of Directors.
In the absence of a timely Annual General Meeting, the Board has chosen to appoint one person to the Board of Directors who will be presented for an official election when the Annual General Meeting occurs virtually. The second vacancy will be recruited for and filled in due course.
With that, we are very excited to announce that Priti Mehta-Shah will be joining Red River Mutual’s Board of Directors. Priti brings a vast amount of relevant experience and expertise to the Board and we look forward to her contributions.
President & CEO
