Credit unions are global in a big way. Just attend a World Credit Union Conference hosted by WOCCU and you will see the impact first hand credit unions have on our planet. Pretty impressive, indeed.
As an example, a WOCCU contingent (WOCCU President/CEO Brian Branch, GECU President/CEO Crystal Long, American Heritage Credit Union President/CEO Bruce Foulke) traveled to Kenya to experience the work credit unions have done in that area of the world. During their visit they stopped by an orphanage and shared their thoughts on the work that has been accomplished -- and credit unions have been a huge part of that for sure.
