The Benefits of Membership

When your organization joins World Council of Credit Unions, it gains the strength of an international credit union network that works on your behalf by engaging in:


International Advocacy

Providing early notice of international regulatory burdens and reducing those before they reach national regulatory levels for credit unions and other financial cooperatives, and to support international standards for regulatory proportionality and financial inclusion.

Education and Networking

Offering global education, engagement and networking opportunities to credit union professionals through in-person and virtual events, including our annual World Credit Union Conference.

Technical Support and Training

Leveraging our network to support credit unions in policy, product and technology development, as well as management development and outreach expansion.

Digital Transformation

Providing access to the knowledge and experience of other credit union systems and partners who have implemented digital online and mobile channels, shared platforms and risk management.

Programs for Credit Union Women 
and Young Professionals


Credit union leaders, professionals, volunteers and business partners unite through the Global Women's Leadership Network (GWLN), our industry's only international platform dedicated to addressing and facilitating greater gender balance among leadership positions.


By engaging the next generation of credit union leaders for professional development, talent commitment and networking, the World Council Young Credit Union Professionals (WYCUP) Program has become a platform for young credit union professionals worldwide to connect, share and live the credit union values of cooperation and people helping people.

A World Council Membership also gives your organization access to:

    • A member engagement network for assistance with everything from routine credit union issues to technological disruptions, pandemics, natural disasters and other strategic challenges.

    • Legislative and regulatory consultations and position support letters.

    • Leadership and executive representation visits from World Council.
