Melissa A. Tinker, Financial Services Coordinator, Community National Bank – Derby, Vermont
My role at Community National Bank
I am the Financial Services Coordinator at Community National Bank in Derby, Vermont. I am also the Assistant Corporate Secretary of the Bank’s holding company, Community Bancorp. Community Bancorp conducts all of the corporations business through its subsidiary, Community National Bank. Since 1851, Community National Bank has been channeling their passions for people and community into the delivery of financial services. Community National Bank, Vermont's Community Bank, is headquartered in Derby, Vermont with other offices located throughout northern and central Vermont.
I have been with the bank since 2002, holding positions in Deposit Operations, on the front line as a teller, and an Accounts Payable Clerk in the Finance Department. I have held my current position in Shareholder Services since 2016. I am responsible for performing all administrative and accounting functions of Shareholder Services, creating board packets, arranging the annual meeting, reporting of Form 3, 4 and 5 Reports, proxy preparation, attending board meetings and recording minutes, and reconciling general ledger accounts.
Recently I have also started learning some Human Resources tasks. I am reviewing and approving employee benefit invoices, employee anniversary awards, completing employment background checks, credit checks, along with signing up employees for health benefits.
I guess you could say I wear many hats. Each day brings new challenges and tasks. The work day is always interesting.
My involvement with the SSA
I have been an SSA member since 2016. Since late 2017, I have been on the Networking and Education Committee. I have been a panelist in a webinar and moderator of a webinar. I have had the opportunity to talk with very knowledgeable people in the industry. Since shareholder services is still new to me, it is great to have a resource like the SSA to reach out to if I need guidance.
A little bit about me
I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Johnson State College in Vermont in 2013. I have been married to my husband Scott for 8 years and we have a beautiful daughter who will be two years old in June.
