World Council of Credit Unions launched in August its COVID-19 Response Committee to support national credit union systems and credit unions globally through the COVID-19 crisis and the economic repercussions that follow. The Committee will do that by identifying best practices and sharing resources all credit unions can utilize in response to the pandemic.

The bimonthly series of webinars will complement that effort. World Council and its regional and national members will work cooperatively in finding speakers and presenters who can provide important and interesting content for credit union professionals.
