Included in the delegation were the Presidents of each Credit Union and three of the four General Managers.

Mr. Sydney Newton, General Manager of the Nevis Co-operative Credit Union was deservingly awarded by CCCU for his sterling contribution as a Board member, where he served as Treasurer of that institution   from  to 2010 to 2013.

After an impressive Opening Ceremony on Saturday afternoon and inspiring church service on Sunday morning, the education sessions started with Dr. Aubrey Armstong, a Guyanese  Educator presenting the  theme for the convention“ Re-engineering Credit Unions for  Success and Sustainability”. During  a full packed three days , the participants were exposed to presentations by experienced experts in topics such as :

The members of the  Delegation met as a group and vouched to ensure that the one of seven Cooperative principles and a topic that was presented at the Conference “ Co-operation among Co-operatives’ will be kept alive. The leaders agreed that a meeting of the four Boards will be held at the St. Kitts Cooperative Credit Union on Wednesday 23rdJuly, 2014.
