Brian McCrory, president of the Irish League of Credit Unions, has been elected chair of World Council of Credit Unions board of directors. McCrory, who succeeded Daniel Burns, representing the Canadian Credit Union Association, formally took office during the World Credit Union Conference Annual General Meeting on Monday in Vienna, Austria.
“We are here trying to enhance cooperation among cooperatives. It is through these collaborations, not based on self-interest, but based on mutual interest we can capture, foster and enable cooperation on a global basis for our members, and our members’ members,” said McCrory. “We exist in the ecosystem of the financial services market, yet our DNA is very different so we must redouble our efforts to educate others. We ask our regulators to regulate not what we do but how we do it.”
