Irish/U.S. Credit Union Exchange Program

Join the Worldwide Foundation in connecting U.S. and Irish credit unions as they collectively tackle issues facing credit union systems worldwide!

In partnership with the Irish Credit Union League, the U.S.-Irish Exchange Program will offer U.S. and Irish credit unions an opportunity to engage in strategic discussions during visits to each country as they collectively map out solutions to issues affecting their systems.

The exchange will work toward:

  • Mutually beneficial exchange of information concerning, but not limited to the operations, marketing, and promotion of credit unions;
  • Development and exchange of best practices for credit unions to improve and expand service to members;
  • Innovation and member service technology,
  • Promotion and growth of credit unions for members, the general public, the media and governmental bodies and officials.
Join the Exchange!
