Dragonsavers AGM Celebrates 20 years of Volunteering & a great year

January 23, 2018

Pictured below, Mr John Kiff receiving a gift of thanks from Vice President Elizabeth Bishop and President, Ian Gylee at the Dragonsavers Annual General Meeting.  The annual report can be read here and the approved accounts available on request.

“John has given generously of his time for as long as I can remember, volunteering at the Tonyrefail branch on what is generally our busiest day. He continues to be an asset to our organisation, is well-known to all our regular members and enjoys a rapport with each and every one of them.” (Wayne Rosser, Office Supervisor in Tonyrefail and John’s line manager)

John has been a volunteer with the credit union since its inception in 2000.  Having undertaken a number of roles over the years and committed more hours than we can believe, John most recently provided front line customer service to members at the Tonyrefail Branch bringing to the role a wealth of experience, both of credit union products and procedures as well as people skills, admin expertise and financial proficiency.

There have been a number of changes in the organisation over the years from moving and renovating premises, changes of staff and volunteers, changes in business plan, policies and procedures and John has embraced each of these changes and has been committed to ensuring continuity for members.  As an organisation Dragonsavers has always sought to canvas staff, volunteers and members before on new and ongoing issues.  John is a keen contributor and his contribution is greatly valued.

John is held in very high regard by Dragonsavers members.  It is not only his length of service that has given John recognition with members, he is known for his calm, helpful and friendly manner.  John is well respected in the community and this gives new and existing members confidence when transacting their credit union business with John.

John also acts as a mentor for new volunteers and work placement students.  John has been a real asset in this respect and over the years he has helped develop and bring on so many people.

He is also highly prized in the office for his baking skills and John’s welsh cakes and jam splits are the envy of our other branches who often miss out!.
