West Midlands member Narinder Randhawa has been elected as NFRN national president for 2021-22.
Narinder is currently an ambassador for the NFRN Credit Union and has held positions at branch, district and national levels.
During his acceptance speech at the NFRN’s Annual Conference this week, he said: “I am not here to rock the boat, and I want to build on the hard work that has already been done by the immediate past president, Stuart Reddish, the NEC and the NC.”
Randhawa also said he would like to see more deals struck with the finance sector: “I believe we have some very good deals for the members. However, there is nothing in the banking or finance sector. I believe we should keep knocking on the door of the finance sector until we get the banking deal we deserve – we need to keep the dialogue going.”
He added: “My vision for the future is for the NFRN to look after the members with preferred deals, preferred banking terms and health deals. I want us to have preferred deals with say gyms, spa centres and hotels etc to give members the feel-good factor back.
“The ultimate vision is that all members get more back than they pay in fees. That is being realised at the moment through the deals we have available. The current deals are worth more than double the annual fee – so it is a win-win situation.”
