International Impact

The SCMS has what I can call real impact to my Credit Union. Last year we were voted the best improved Credit Union in the region. We are now in the middle of our year 2016 - 2021 Strategic Plan.The Board of Directors have really appreciated the progress and the achievements, since they can see the results of the knowledge I acquired through you and your entire team.
