The group, which is being hosted in the United States by the World Council of Credit Unions, was in New York to learn more about the U.S. credit union system (The Point Nov. 7).
The association provided the Brazilian delegation with an overview of the U.S. credit union and trade association structure. Much of the discussion focused on political advocacy and governmental affairs--areas the visiting credit union representatives hope to develop in Brazil.
The group asked questions about the regulatory environment and regulatory advocacy, and shared ideas on how to grow memberships and leverage technology. The association also shared information about credit union service organizations and how New York credit unions cooperate in the delivery of services.
