Singapore, 13 Jul 2018 - Singapore will be the first country in Southeast Asia to host the World Credit Union Conference (WCUC), a high-level global event for the credit co-operative industry, from 15 to 18 July 2018. Singapore won the rights to host the annual event in 2016.

Nickdapoohbear
@nickdapoohbear: AGM marks our final CCA Session together.
Beginning my entrepreneurial journey not knowing what to expect and who I'll meet were things I feared. As time passed, the awkward us grew to be a loving Nexus Family.
I looked forward to every session because it was always fun & laughter, things that turned my down days around. Even though we won't meet up as frequent, I hope that we will continue hanging out even as our schedule becomes busier. Love you guys!!!❤ All the best for A Levels! Wishing the J1s a fruitful time as well & make Nexus even greater☺ I don't regret joining a cooperative because it gave me an insight on how certain products came about for a purposeful objective & many of such products are common items seen in our everyday lives which I would never have realised unless I became a member of a cooperative.
Moreover, it gave me the opportunity to serve others together with my team members which is really meaningful. @sncfsg #thatsacoop
