Brian King told Matt that his advice was always listened to and the President echoed the sentiments of all in attendance when he told Matt he would always find a welcome from his friends at Chapter 14.
Matt de Forge thanked the Chapter which he described as an integral part of the Credit Union movement.

Also in attendance for the presentation was Irish League Of Credit Unions Director, John Long who spoke highly of Chapter and people like Matt that have helped keep the Chapter such a fundamental part of the Irish Credit Union landscape.
