Madison, WI- World Council of Credit Unions and the international credit union community remember the life and achievements of a credit union leader, the late Jack Dublin. In 1963 and 1964 the Michigan Credit Union League, also a long-time supporter of the international program, funded Dublin and his wife, Selma, to participate in a credit union development exchange in Africa.

Dublin's passion for international credit union systems began with visits from overseas credit union leaders to Michigan. Dublin, like many U.S. credit union leaders, believed in the power of partnerships between developed and developing credit union systems.

After Dublin finished helping devise a plan for Latin America for CUNA's World Extension Department (World Council of Credit Unions), he moved his family to Tanganyika (now Tanzania). There both he and Selma mobilized credit union members, educating them on financial management skills, and training credit union staff on bookkeeping, operations and governance.

Dublin was recognized later in his career with the international credit union system's highest honor, the World Council of Credit Unions' Distinguished Service Award. He was one of the last to have worked with the two great U.S. credit union pioneers: Roy Bergengren and Edward Filene.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of a committed credit union leader, colleague and friend. Jack will be missed, but remembered," noted Pete Crear, World Council of Credit Unions CEO.

The family of Jack Dublin has designated memorial contributions be sent in his name to the World Council of Credit Unions' Worldwide Foundation or the Schillios Fabric of Life Foundation.
