Abstract

Asian Credit Union Forum is an annual event held by the ACCU or Association of Asian Confederation of Credit Unions to discuss the salient issues, debates, and resolutions that center on the topic of credit union management. With the forum giving more of its focus on the dilemmas faced by leaders in their own CUs (credit unions), several notable speakers and experts on credit unions have been invited. All presentations and talks given during the forum are formally presented in this material, broken into three parts as based from the program. The first part takes on the primary breakout session about the importance of Board Development - which emphasizes the not only the functions of the Board beyond giving annual reports, but also their value in taking on executive decisions that would make or break the success of the organization. On the other hand, the second breakout session emphasizes and highlights the need for credit unions to be adaptable and responsive towards the changing needs of the members. In this part, relationships between executives and managers are given attention. Lastly, the final part pertains to the latter session of the program that plays on the idea of governance and accountability of the Board, especially in a credit union setting. Searching for new ways to  bring in new members, investing on new educational opportunities, including annual evaluation on CU performance are few of the things discussed during the forum. Visual illustrations, key concepts, as well as detailed textual accounts of the presentations, are stipulated in this program book.
