LAS VEGAS – The Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions, the charitable arm of World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), has taken its annual auction electronic this year, and shoppers around the globe will be able to bid online on contributed auction items to help raise funds for global credit union development work.

The auction, traditionally part of WOCCU’s World Credit Union Conference, will be held this year at The 1 Credit Union Conference, the joint event sponsored by WOCCU and Credit Union National Association (CUNA) that will convene July 11-14 at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Conference participants may examine items up for bid in person, then go to one of the computer terminals in the auction hall and place bids at www.biddingforgood.com/woccu. Individuals who are not attending the conference may also bid on items at the same Web address.

“In the past, only conference attendees could bid on the auction items, but this year the auction is open to everyone,” said Judy Ensweiler, wife of Texas Credit Union League President and CEO Dick Ensweiler, who is co-chairing the auction this year with Crissy Cheney, wife of incoming CUNA President and CEO Bill Cheney. “WOCCU works every day to improve the lives of those less fortunate by developing credit union systems around the globe,” she added. “So, get in the spirit and start bidding to support this wonderful work.”

The auction site is available for viewing June 28, enabling bidding to begin. The bidding ends at the closing of the conference trade show July 13, at 1:45 p.m. Winning bidders will be notified via email. In addition, a live auction will be held during the conference’s closing event July 14, with auctioneer Dick Ensweiler presenting the auction’s premier items for bidding.

Bidders may register online with a credit or debit card (sorry, no cash accepted) and bid any time between June 28 and July 13. Log on to www.biddingforgood.com/woccu and put your money to work supporting the global credit union movement.
