Minnesota CUs host Ecuador visitors
ST. PAUL, Minn. (8/15/12)--A group from one of the largest credit unions in South America--Ecuador's Cooperativa COOPROGRESO--visited four Minnesota credit unions as part of an exchange program organized by the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) and the Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN).

The Ecuadorian credit union representatives made stops at Hiway FCU and City & County CU in St. Paul, US FCU in Burnsville, and Postal CU in Woodbury. The hosting credit unions showed the visitors how Minnesota credit unions use new technology and how they attract and retain members with their products and services. Minnesota credit unions also shared ideas about driving membership growth and creating credit union awareness opportunities.

"As we receive more and more requests to connect credit unions around the world, we rely on strong partners and supporters such as the Minnesota Credit Union Network," said Victor Miguel Corro, Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions vice president. "The ability to have peer-to-peer exchanges is invaluable as the information and operational best practices flow when the parties meet. When the World Council connects these different worlds, everyone in the exchange benefits."

"For our credit unions in Minnesota to be able to participate in an international exchange like this is a wonderful opportunity to share industry knowledge that helps to foster credit union development around the globe," said Mark D. Cummins, MnCUN president/CEO. "For the credit unions that hosted our partners in Ecuador, it is a great example of the 'people helping people' philosophy and the successes we can have when working together."
