Credit Union Times’ onsite coverage of the World Council of Credit Unions’ 2001 International Conference and Annual General Meeting was provided by our Overseas Correspondent Donna-Lane Nelson. A native Bostonian, Nelson currently lives in Switzerland. Her most recent credit union employment before relocating overseas was with Digital FCU in Maynard, Mass. Nelson has been writing for Credit Union Times since the mid-1990′s. Besides writing about the WOCCU’s conference in Ireland, Nelson has basically covered credit unions throughout the world for Credit Union Times, including stories on credit unions in Ukraine, the Phillipines, Australia, New Zealand and Bulgaria, among others. Nelson will also be onsite for Credit Union Times at WOCCU’s Fifth International Credit Union Leadership Institute in Paris, France in July.
