United States' credit unions can learn a lot from Poland's credit unions. Even though Poland's credit union movement is mere fraction of the size of America's, it has had phenomenal success since it unified its voice -- something U.S. credit unions should seriously consider. To get the backstory on Poland's unified credit union success and other international issues, I awoke at 5:30 a.m. (San Diego) just in time chat with Grzegorz Bierecki, President/CEO of the National Association of Cooperative Savings and Credit Unions, before he ended his workday in Poland. Grzergorz is also 1st Vice Chair of the WOCCU. Speaking of the WOCCU, we discuss the big plans for the WOCCU's World Credit Union Conference taking place in Gdansk, Poland, in July 2012. It was a true pleasure having Grzegorz on the show for our first bonafide international interview. Enjoy the show!
