MADISON, Wis. — To experience the credit union movement in Ecuador, the World Council of Credit Unions has announced the dates for its 2008 Cooperative Learning Tours to the South American country.

The tours will run April 6-13 and Oct. 12-19. In addition to visiting multiple credit unions throughout Ecuador, tour members will participate in “think tank” sessions focused on membership growth, micro-entrepreneurial activities, managing remittances, rural community development, reaching out to Hispanic members and other pertinent credit union topics. Participants also will visit El Crater on the rim of the Pululahua Volcano, the historic districts of both Quito and Cuenca, the Mitad del Mundo Monument, located on the Earth’s equator, and the Telef?(C)rico tram and view of Quito from high atop the Andes.
