WOCCU launches Year of Co-ops online resources
MADISON, Wis. (9/16/11)--The World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) this week launched a special section on its website to provide a platform for credit union organizations to share ideas about cooperative services and ways to celebrate 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives (IYC).

The U.N. earlier this year designated 2012 as a time to recognize the contributions of cooperative enterprises worldwide, including credit unions. “Credit unions play a critical role in the lives of their members, and it is important to recognize and celebrate that role,” said Brian Branch, WOCCU president/CEO. “We encourage our members to add to the International Year of Cooperatives section on our website by sharing ideas related to member service in general and the year-long celebration in particular.” The International Year of Cooperatives will officially launch the week of Oct. 31-Nov. 1, with a series of meetings and workshops at the U.N.’s New York City headquarters. WOCCU’s online IYC platform contains information and resources for WOCCU member organizations interested in recognizing and celebrating the year-long designation. The website also features a forum through which members, credit unions and other cooperative business leaders can share ideas, photos and videos about IYC and current issues affecting credit unions. The website features celebration and service ideas, financial cooperative information, links to related sites and events and IYC branding guidelines. To subscribe to the RSS feed on the IYC Forum, use the link. The Credit Union National Association’s theme for International Credit Union Day, “Credit Unions Build a Better World,” ties directly to the IYC theme, “Cooperative Enterprises Build a Better World." International Credit Union Day is Oct. 20.
