Kids draw what cooperation looks like
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (8/6/12)--By providing a forum for children to express their artistic talent through drawing, SICREDI, one of Brazil's credit union organizations and the Texas Credit Union League's (TCUL) "People to People" partner, has come up with a way to celebrate the International Year of the Cooperatives this year.

SICREDI created a website (use the link) and is encouraging children to draw an image depicting cooperation and then to upload that image to the website, said the league (LoneStar Leaguer Aug. 3).

Several drawings already have been posted, and visitors can view the images by clicking on the "Desenhos" tab on the website. SICREDI is inviting children worldwide to participate.

TCUL and SICREDI in 2010--through the World Council of Credit Unions--signed a "People to People" partnership, opening the door for the exchanges of ideas and best practices between the two organizations.

Twelve representatives from SICREDI are expected to attend TCUL's Marketing & Business Development Conference Sept. 4-6 and the Leadership Conference & Expo Sept. 6-8. Both conferences will be held in San Antonio.

The 12 SICREDI executives will "shadow" credit union employees after the conferences. The 12 will split into three groups, and each group will spend one week with one credit union and another week with a second credit union. TCUL will identify credit unions to host the group.
