Southwest Corporate partners with Belize league
MADISON, Wis. (1/22/08)--Representatives from Southwest Corporate FCU in Plano, Texas, traveled to Belize two weeks ago to form an international partnership with the Belize Credit Union League, the first relationship between an international association and a corporate credit union in the U.S. The partnership is the most recent of 25 partnerships established

through the World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) International Partnerships program. By sharing information, the two organizations will establish a relationship based on technical areas. “Most of the services that Southwest Corporate offers are applicable in the league,” said Natalie Goff, the Belize league’s executive director. “The credit unions in Belize also can transfer a lot of knowledge to U.S. credit unions, especially in community outreach.” In such partnerships, credit union leagues play a bigger role in advocacy efforts on the part of their affiliated partner organizations, said Victor Miguel Corro, WOCCU’s International Partnerships manager. Southwest Corporate delegates who traveled with Corro to Belize Jan. 9 included Kathy Garner, president of its northwest regional office; Lisa Thomas, product manager; and Bob Rehm, senior vice president of sales and marketing. Delegates visited 12 of Belize’s 13 credit unions to familiarize themselves with the institutions’ technical needs. The league also organized a social gathering that included Belize Prime Minister Said Wilbert Musa and his wife, Joan, and representatives from the country’s credit unions. A reciprocal visit to the U.S. by the Belize league is planned for this summer.
