Credit unions around the world have a lot to learn from each other, says World Council of Credit Unions President/CEO Brian Branch.

That’s why International Credit Union (ICU) Day® is “a great day for connecting,” Branch says in the latest CUNA News Podcast.

“Credit union systems around the world have much more in common than they did even just five years ago,” Branch says. “So, there is even more value in that cross-border communication.”

Branch discusses his career traveling around the world and working with credit union leaders from many cultures. He also talks about working to boost cooperative financial efforts in geopolitical hotspots such as Cuba, Ukraine, and Afghanistan.

World Council is the credit union movement’s leading international trade association and development agency.
