MADISON, Wis. — World Council of Credit Unions’ 2021 World Credit Union Conference, originally set to be held in Glasgow, Scotland from 11-14, July, will now be hosted virtually. The online event will take place from 14-21, July 2021.

The reimagined World Credit Union Conference, featuring more than 30 educational sessions with topics relevant to all leadership levels, is set to be wider reaching and more accessible than ever, with multiple opportunities to actively network with other attendees and industry partners from across our international cooperative movement.
