Segovia Boltes addresses Minnesota Credit Union Network's 2006 Annual Meeting
Special guests from the Paraguayan credit union organization Central de
Cooperativas del Area Nacional Ltda. (CENCOPAN) attended the Minnesota
Credit Union Network’s 2006 Annual Meeting April 7-8 and were featured
speakers at the business meeting. Dr. Modesto Segovia Boltes, Board
President of CENCOPAN, spoke to attendees to increase awareness of the
partnership that exists between CENCOPAN and MnCUN.
The two credit union trade associations began their
relationship in 2004 through the World Council of Credit Union’s (WOCCU’s)
International Partnership Program. The relationship was formed to exchange
knowledge, information and experiences to benefit the credit union Movement in
both countries. Technology and legislative/regulatory advocacy were identified
as the major concentrations of the partnership.
