MADISON, Wis. -- WOCCU just gained two associate members from among the major industry players at a recent board of directors meeting.
CO-OP Financial Services and Financial Service Centers Cooperative will enjoy all the benefits of WOCCU membership, including seats at the annual general meeting. However, as associate members, the firms may not vote for members of the WOCCU board, nor serve on the board.
"FSCC has maintained international branches for more than six years," said FSCC president and CEO, Sarah Canepa Bang. "We've long used WOCCU resources and thought it was time to pay the organization back and support its good work by becoming more involved."
Pete Crear, WOCCU's president and chief executive officer, said the two new associate memberships signal a growing support for WOCCU's mission, as well as indicate the increasing importance technology plays in serving emerging credit union movements.
