Thirteen Belize credit union delegates, including five from Belize’s 13 member credit unions, traveled to Southwest Corporate in Plano, Texas, for the event. The Belize credit union contingent represented La Inmaculada CU, St. John’s CU, Holy Redeemer CU, Toledo Teacher’s CU and St. Martin’s CU. The hosts organized roundtable educational sessions with local credit union executives to discuss technology operations and security, business continuity, product development, and marketing and loan operations. Delegates also participated in a training session on board governance and took operational tours of local credit unions. Natalie Goff, BCUL executive director, visited the Texas Credit Union League’s Bob Gallman, senior vice president and chief operations officer, and Mike Delker, vice president of credit union relations. The visit concluded with the partnership-agreement signing. Corporate credit unions offer services that allow natural-person credit unions to better meet member needs, said Victor Miguel Corro, WOCCU International Partnerships manager. “We have been working with corporates very closely for a long time; they play a very important role in WOCCU’s development overseas,” he said. “We view Southwest Corporate as part of an evolved credit union system and hope that the knowledge that they share with us will help Belize in its mission to have stronger credit unions,” Goff said. “We also hope that Southwest Corporate can learn from the passion that Belize credit unionists have for their credit unions.”
