84th Annual Meeting

The year 2022 continued to bring challenges for our nation, our state, and Charter Oak as the global COVID 19 health crisis continued. As we navigated through quarantines and staffing fluctuations as branches opened and closed and opened again, our employees rallied and our enhanced digital services ensured that we continued to do business and meet our members’ needs.

Throughout the year, we successfully navigated these challenges with the assistance, understanding, and support of our members and employees. Read our 2022 Annual Report below, to learn more about our success.
