The Star (St. Lucia) - - COMMENT -

The World Coun­cil of Credit Unions (WOCCU) app will en­able peo­ple to en­gage with thou­sands of their peers in dif­fer­ent coun­tries to share information, re­sources, best prac­tices and news. The app, and the con­tent within it, is driven by the peo­ple who use it. Credit union pro­fes­sion­als can cre­ate a pro­file; as well as con­nect their Twit­ter, Face­book and LinkedIn pages. They then earn points by shar­ing ar­ti­cles, pic­tures, and com­ments Ad­di­tion­ally, they can fol­low their peers and send mes­sages to each other di­rectly through the through the WOCCU app. The Topics sec­tion fea­tures dis­cus­sions re­gard­ing big ques­tions fac­ing the credit union move­ment such as pay­ment tech­nol­ogy, at­tract­ing youth and mar­ket dis­rup­tors. The topics will change as what mat­ters most to the move­ment changes over time.

“We un­der­stand that peo­ple have lim­ited time and money to at­tend con­fer­ences and dig through the In­ter­net for information,” said Brian Branch, World Coun­cil pres­i­dent and CEO. “That is why we cre­ated the WOCCU app; to bring credit union pro­fes­sion­als to a space where they can net­work and drive the con­ver­sa­tions that need to hap­pen to ad­vance the move­ment”.

Us­ing the WOCCU app is also fun as par­tic­i­pants gain points for ev­ery ar­ti­cle, pic­ture, com­ment and ques­tion they ask. The top user of the app by De­cem­ber 31, 2016 will win a free con­fer­ence reg­is­tra­tion to the World Credit Union Con­fer­ence in Vi­enna, Aus­tria.

The World Coun­cil of Credit Unions has been a global leader in credit union com­mu­ni­ca­tion since its in­cep­tion in 1971. Now, by way of the gen­er­ous sup­port of Vancity Credit Union, Van­cou­ver, Canada, the World Coun­cil is able to in­tro­duce the lat­est tool for global credit union com­mu­ni­ca­tion, the WOCCU App.
