Check out the new look of our homepage

February 28, 2019

MADISON, Wis.—It is now easier than ever to learn about all the things World Council of Credit Unions is doing for its members and the international credit union movement.

We have launched a new, user-friendly homepage at featuring the key services we provide to credit unions around the world, and the latest news and events important to each of those focus areas.

In just one stop you can find the latest updates on World Council’s:

  • Advocacy work being done at the international level to reduce regulatory burdens for credit unions.
  • Financial Inclusion work in the developing world.
  • Digital Transformation Lab—which seeks to expand digital financial services worldwide.
  • Learning and Education programs—like The Global Classroom.
  • Worldwide Foundation efforts to “Do Global Good.”
  • Engagement opportunities for members through our Worldwide Foundation and Global Women’s Leadership Network.

“We want to communicate the multidimensional work we do to defend and grow credit unions as soon as they land on our homepage. A couple of new areas on the webpage are the Digital Transformation Lab where we share industry best practices on the way to achieve our vision of the digitization of the global credit union system and the Engagement section where we invite the movement to participate with us in the field. The webpage allows first-time guests to easily learn about all the areas we reach, while frequent visitors can find the latest updates without having to search for them,” said World Council President and CEO Brian Branch.

The new homepage also features easy-to-find navigation that leads to more information about World Council’s mission and history, our network of credit union associations and supporters, and upcoming events—like our annual World Credit Union Conference.
