European Parliament Credit Union Interest Group

In December 2014, ENCU launched the European Parliament Credit Union Interest Group. The Interest Group is an informal, all party European Parliamentary Group that meets twice a year (in spring and autumn) to raise awareness about credit unions and micro-finance among EU institutions and stakeholders, and discuss key issues relevant to the credit union movement including financial inclusion, access to payment infrastructure, sound commercial practices, consumer protection, financial education, and corporate governance. The forum also allows MEPs to meet and interact with credit union representatives from their respective countries and hear more about the issues affecting them.

The most recent Interesting Group Meeting took place on the 27th of November, 2018.

The European Parliament Credit Union Interest Group has reconvened for the 2019-2014 Parliamentary term with the support of Co-Chairs MEP Ryszard Czarnecki and MEP Billy Kelleher, and Vice-Chair MEP Paul Tang.
