Anne Cochran, president/CEO of the Louisiana Credit Union League, accepted the position of board chair for the World Council of Credit Unions during the group’s annual general session Tuesday in Denver. Cochran, who will be the first female chair of the board, succeeds outgoing Chair Grzegorz Bierecki, president/CEO of Poland’s National Association of Co-operative Savings and Credit Unions.

"My passion for the credit union movement in the past 15 years has helped me to represent World Council in many arenas, from management certification programs to training at global conferences to working with universities in Ecuador, Moscow, and Nairobi," Cochran said.

"I want to borrow a phrase from my Caribbean friends: the credit union movement is in my DNA," she told attendees of the World Credit Union Conference, which is being held in conjunction with America’s Credit Union Conference in Denver.

Patrick Jury, president/CEO of the Iowa Credit Union League, will serve as second vice chair on the board.

The World Credit Union Conference and America's Credit Union Conference has welcomed more than 3,000 people from 61 countries at the Colorado Convention Center this week. The event runs from July 12-15. Follow conference activities, including daily event photos, on Facebook and Twitter with #CUinDenver2015.
