Scottish Parliament welcomes WOCCU conference
EDINBURGH, Scot. (7/6/11)--A motion by Members of the Scottish Parliament officially welcomes the World Credit Union Conference, which will be in Glasgow later this month, according to the Association of British Credit Unions Ltd. (ABCUL), the credit union association member organization of World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU). WOCCU is sponsor of the conference, which will be held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Center July 24-27 in Glasgow. (For more information on the conference, use the link.) A motion by Johann Lamont, MSP, Scottish Labour's deputy leader and MSP for Glasgow Pollok, has so far been signed by 30 MSPs. The resolution says that Parliament looks forward to the arrival of up to 1,700 credit union delegates from around 60 countries to Scotland for the conference. It congratulates WOCCU on its development work with credit unions across the globe and praises the contribution of the directors, staff and volunteers of Scotland's 110 credit unions. It also calls for support for the movement's development as outlined in the ABCUL Scotland Credit Union Charter. "MSPs of all parties have a great record of supporting the credit unions in their areas, and it's very encouraging to see this level of support from the Scottish Parliament not only for the arrival of the World Credit Union Conference, but also for the measures required to ensure the development and growth of Scotland's credit union movement," said Frank McKillop, ABCUL policy and relations manager in Scotland, on ABCUL's website.
