Take a deep dive into Sicredi’s innovative credit union system.

The World Council of Credit Unions and the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions, the charitable arm of the World Council, invites you to attend a study of Sicredi, the Brazilian credit union system, March 29–April 3.

By attending, you will learn about Sicredi’s sustainable model for credit union collaborative systems and how they excel in branding, financial performance, and member service.

Sicredi, one of the fastest growing systems today, has created a network of 116 credit unions serving 4 million members with 1,575 points of service under a common brand and through common operating systems.

This engagement study will allow CEOs and senior credit union professionals to take a deep-dive into this innovative system and explore lessons learned in compliance, marketing, and the overall business model.
