Principle Six: Cooperation among cooperatives. Credit unions serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative principles by working with other cooperatives through local, state, regional, national, and international structures.

ready to brainstorm with pens and post-itsChapter leaders from North Carolina and South Carolina gathered in Myrtle Beach April 10-11 to share best practices, network and discuss the future. More than 35 credit union staff representing 11 chapters in the Carolinas were joined by League staff for the event. 

The workshop kicked off with a Tuesday evening reception followed by a full day of engagement and sharing Wednesday. "Chapters are a key cog in the credit union system," shared Jeff Hardin, the CCUL director of cooperative initiatives. "They connect local credit union staff together through networking and collaborative community events. The relationships they develop over time are an important part of the success of our movement."  

A few themes emerged from the interactive discussions, including discovering the unique value proposition - the why - of each individual chapter, reaching out to local credit unions that have not been as engaged in recent years, and increasing communication and collaboration efforts across the chapter system.    

And a key finding for the League: this workshop should be an annual event. "The workshop is the League's statement of support to our chapters, and it will be an annual event going forward" shared Hardin. "We support the ongoing efforts of our chapter leaders and will do all we can to help them thrive."
