The Movement

This year we are introducing a new theme series: The Movement.

Credit unions are more than simply an industry, we are part of something greater, a movement, The Credit Union Movement. Our common mission and purpose is to:

"Encourage thrift among [our] members, create a source of fair credit at a fair and reasonable cost and provide an opportunity for [our] members to improve their economic and social conditions" - Wis. Stats. § 186.01(2)

Move with Purpose

This is why in 2017, we're going to explore how, as a movement, we can and do Move with Purpose. As part of our common purpose, we observe the seven cooperative principles:

  1. Voluntary & Open Membership
  2. Democratic Member Control
  3. Member's Economic Participation
  4. Autonomy & Independence
  5. Education, Training & Information
  6. Cooperation Among Cooperatives
  7. Concern for Community

Credit unions are at their best when they use this common purpose as a primary guide for decision-making. This fosters a passion, dedication and commitment to serving their members and the community, further strengthening other credit unions and the movement as a whole. 

Strengthen your skills and find out how when you move with purpose you, your credit union, your members and the credit union movement as a whole benefits. Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • How to be a leader in your community
  • How to be a resource for lawmakers
  • How to share your credit union’s story in new ways
  • How to build relationships with legislators
  • How to capitalize on emerging industry trends
  • How to create, promote & strengthen REAL Solutions at your credit union
  • How to proactively support the credit union movement
  • How to maximize the skills of staff and volunteers, from board members to young professionals and everyone in between
  • Join your League, peers and industry experts from around the globe as we gather as one movement with a common purpose!
