Connecticut league sends interns to TrinidadTobago
MERIDEN, Conn. (11/14/08)--The Credit Union League of Connecticut (CULC) has entered into a partnership agreement with the Cooperative Credit Union League of Trinidad and Tobago that involves an internship program between the two leagues. The International Partnerships Development Committee of CULC recently selected Patti Prendergast, vice president of marketing and membership development at Stamford (Conn.) FCU, and Fred Brown, director of marketing and member development at Northeast Family FCU, Manchester, to participate in its Internship Exchange Program with the Trinidad and Tobago league. Interns spend two weeks learning, sharing information, and comparing procedures with the host credit union. Prendergast interned at Tranquility CU located in Port of Spain, Trinidad, where she worked with the education/marketing committee and staff to establish a strategic marketing plan. “This was a truly unique experience to work at a credit union in another country,” Prendergast said. “I was inspired by the enthusiasm and dedication of the people in the credit union movement.” Brown interned in the marketing department at Eastern CU in La Joya, Trinidad. “Working with Eastern CU, I saw firsthand just how strong the credit union movement is in Trinidad and Tobago and how far we--the U.S.--have to go,” Brown said. The International Partnerships Development Committee--which is affiliated with the World Council of Credit Unions--works cooperatively to build an interconnected, international credit union system to serve credit unions and their members.
