Visit Puerto Rico & Kenya
Study, Service and Support
Field engagements can be deep-dive studies to understand the challenges a credit union system faces and the relevance of that experience at home. The engagements also allow participants to get involved with local credit union volunteer and community service work. Technical and advocacy efforts assist credit unions to help tackle their top technical or regulatory challenges.
2019 Field Engagements
We will return to Puerto Rico August 1-6 after the World Credit Union Conference, July 28-31, in the Bahamas. Participants will learn about the history of this U.S. territory and engage with the Puerto Rico credit unions in their continuing work to rebuild their communities after 2017 Hurricane Maria.For more information, contact Laura Mihm
In early December 2019, we will return to Kenya in service work and to share the holiday spirit with the Busia orphanage in Kenya. We continue to spread the message of Busia — the orphanage that credit unions built. We will be traveling the first part of December 2019.For more information, contact Laura Mihm
Mutual challenges face the Irish and U.S. credit union systems. In response, the World Council, through its Worldwide Foundation and between the Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) offers an exchange program, designed to align the needs and expertise of both sides of the Atlantic to find solutions to address short and long-term challenges.For more information, contact Laura Mihm
