The event is sponsored by the Global Women’s Leadership Network, a relatively new World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) initiative. The tournament, a charity event open to the public, will raise funds for the network, which provides peer-to-peer networking and educational events for credit union women who are leaders from both developed and developing countries. Golf tournament proceeds will fund scholarships to attend the network’s annual forum and WOCCU development programs providing assistance to women in Colombia, Kenya and Sri Lanka. CO-OP Financial Services, a WOCCU associate member organization, is a presenting sponsor. Other tournament supporters include CU*Answers, Ser-Technology, CUDL, and Mitchell, Stankovic & Associates. “CO-OP Financial Services is a strong advocate for WOCCU and its mission,” said Stan Hollen, CO-OP's president and CEO. “We're committed to making this inaugural golf tournament a success because the funds will be put to such a good use in promoting credit union development worldwide.” For information on The 1 Credit Union Conference, shows and tours, use the resource link.
