Bill Oemichen of the Cooperative Network also serves on CUNA's Cooperative Alliances Committee.


"Madison, Wisconsin — as home to the Credit Union National AssociationCUNA Mutual GroupWorld Council of Credit Unions and the Filene Research Institute — has long been considered the hub of the world credit union movement," said Brett Thompson, League President & CEO. Thompson


"Having the heart of the movement so close, it's no wonder our state sees individual leadership of this caliber, and why we continue to encourage the next generation of credit union leaders to follow in their footsteps by giving back to the movement."
