The newly created position is designed to more effectively address the growing global advocacy needs of World Council's member organizations.

"A key purpose of World Council is to advocate on behalf of its members," said WOCCU President/CEO Brian Branch. "Michael Edwards brings significant experience and a high level of capabilities to this position, which will help us better serve our members' advocacy needs."

Prior to the WOCCU appointment, Edwards was senior assistant general counsel for the Credit Union National Association in Washington, D.C., and served as a volunteer on a number of World Council assignments. He was also editor of the American Bar Association's Administrative Law Review.
