Nine U.S. Credit Union Leaders Appointed to World Council’s IEVC

Nine American credit union leaders have been recognized for their dedication to international credit union development and volunteer service with the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), having been named to the International Executive Volunteer Corps (IEVC). The appointments were announced this week.

Alan Cameron, president and CEO of the Idaho Credit Union League and Affiliates, is the lone appointee from a western state this year.

For appointment, inductees must have demonstrated at least a three-year commitment to furthering World Council’s International credit union development efforts and have participated in two or more volunteer assignments abroad. They must also have hosted at least four international credit union visitors within the last two years. The achievements of this year’s inductees span six countries.

Cameron was recognized for a former partnership with the Solomon Islands Credit Union League.

Cameron said he was pleased to be selected for IEVC participation because “it underscores my commitment to and support of WOCCU’s efforts to teach people around the world on ways to realize financial security.”

“World Council volunteers are vital to international credit union development and to building a global community,” said Brian Branch, World Council president and CEO. “Partner credit union movements receive tailored, one-on-one training in critical areas. At the same time, seasoned professionals who lend their expertise bring a unique international perspective back to their credit unions.”

“WOCCU has helped credit unions in Idaho make a lasting impact on credit unions and their members half way around the world through their international partnerships. My selection to IEVC reflects the willingness of Idaho credit unions to look beyond their own communities for ways to expand the credit union movement,” said Cameron.

In addition to Cameron, the new IEVC members are:

World Council advocates in behalf of the global credit union movement and works with national governments to improve the operating environment. WOCCU has implemented nearly 300 technical assistance programs increasing credit unions’ financial performance and outreach in 71 countries.
