The Members Committee is a group of elected members who meet monthly to review any issues referred to it by the Board. In doing so, they provide another link between the Board and the members. They take part in a wide range of Teachers Mutual Bank activities, including attending member functions throughout the year, aiming to be represented at each of the Mobile Offices. They receive valuable feedback from members at these events, deepening their understanding of issues and concerns affecting members, which is fed back to management and the Board.
