Warm wishes and a great thank you was given to William D. Horne on his retirement as Westerly Community Credit Union’s Board of Directors Chairman at the recent 2018 Westerly Community Credit Union Annual Meeting held March 26, 2018.
William served on the Westerly Community Credit Union Board of Directors since 1994, and as Chairperson of the Board since 2002. He was also a member of the Basketball, Budget, Investment, Pension, and IT Committees. William previously held the positions of 1st Vice Chairperson in 2000-2001, Supervisory Committee (1993), and Credit Committee (1992). William is retired from the Town of Stonington, where he taught for over 35 years.
He was honored by the President & CEO, Stephen J. White, who thanked him for his mentorship, friendship, and years of services to the membership. Steven W.

Danny M. Nesmith, WCCU Board 1st Vice Chair summed it up by stating ‘So, what comes to mind when you think of WCCU Board Chairperson William Horne? To me, it’s what I heard at every board meeting discussion as far back as I can remember - “Is this action (or vote) in the best interest of the Member?” That simple question, my friend, is what Bill Horne should be recognized and known for to the members of this Credit Union”. He truly and unselfishly represented your interests in this institution at every meeting and opportunity. ‘
The Staff and Board of Directors of the Westerly Community Credit Union would like to congratulate Bill on his retirement from the Board and say thank you for all his years of caring about Westerly Community Credit Union and its members.
