Doug Stoddart, CEO of Nelson & District Credit Union (NDCU), has been elected by Credit Union Central of Canada (CUCC) to serve as one of their two representatives to the World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) Board of Directors.

John Edwards, NDCU Board Chair was enthusiastic in stating, “It is a great accomplishment for our Credit Union and communities to have another representative on the world credit union system stage.

“Doug’s appointment shows how the international credit union system is truly co-operative in nature when credit unions of all sizes can participate.”

He adds, “It was not long ago that Tom Atkins, NDCU’s Manager for Marketing & Relationship Development, was recognized with a WOCCU young leader award in 2006.”

Stoddart has served as the CEO of NDCU since 1992. He also serves as a board member of Central 1 Credit Union and a delegate to the Canadian Cooperative Association.

He was elected to the CUCC Board in 2013.

Stoddart will represent Canada on the World Council Board following World Council’s 2014 AnnualGeneral Meeting in July. He will also serve as a liaison between World Council and Canadian creditunion system.

“We look forward to working with Doug and learning from his solid experience with co-operatives,” said Brian Branch, World Council president and CEO.
