CU System briefs (10/24/2008)
* GREENSBORO, N.C. (10/27/08)--Two staffers from Suriname's Godo CU--Member Service Representative Corrine Hooplot, left, and Head Teller Felicia Ejik--visited North Carolina credit unions Oct. 11-19 to learn technology, improving efficiency on the front lines, and deepening member relationships. Credit unions visited included American Partners FCU, Carolina Postal CU, Latino Community CU, State Employees' CU and Truliant FCU (Weekly Update Oct. 22). Since their visit coincided with International Credit Union Day celebrations, the pair experienced a Murder Mystery in Hickory with the Foothills Chapter and celebrated Oct. 16th with the Piedmont Chapter. "These visits are always helpful and inspiring for everyone," said the North Carolina Credit Union League President/CEO John Radebaugh. "We learn from one another, and I think the big thing both sides discover is despite differences in culture, services and technology, we are all bound together by the cooperative spirit."
