Because we’re a mutual we exist to benefit our members, as owners of the Society. Membership rights mean members can have a say on decisions which affect how we are run.
One of the ways they can do this is through voting on key issues in our AGM (Annual General Meeting), such as the election of our board directors and the approval of our financial accounts.
Every year we’ll write to members to invite them to cast a vote. Votes can be sent back to us in the post, registered online or members can come along to our AGMs to vote, ask questions and meet our board of directors in person.
As a mutual that is wholly owned by our members we like to keep in touch to find out what members think about us and the wider financial services sector, but it isn’t possible for us to communicate with all our members regularly on a face-to-face basis, so we have developed the LV= Member Panel.
This group of around 40 members meet with our board of directors and executive team twice a year to discuss our business performance, opportunities for the company, and future developments. Their input and feedback really helps us understand what members expect from us.
From time to time we look for new members to join our Member Panel. If you’d like to find out more about what’s involved please email the membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
