Upon an appeal by the Bank, the New Jersey Supreme Court has ordered a stay in the effectiveness of an order by the Passaic County Superior Court. As part of that action the Supreme Court directed that the annual member meeting scheduled for January 21, 2022 be delayed until a final judgement is entered by the Superior Court. At the January 21 2022 meeting the Bank adjourned the meeting until February 21, 2022. In view of the uncertainty of when the legal proceedings will permit reconvening the annual meeting, the Bank has again adjourned the annual meeting until further notice. Once the court proceedings have reached a stage where reconvening the adjourned meeting is permitted a new notice of the status of the 2022 annual meeting will be posted. Please check back as future updates will be posted here.
