Université des Administrateurs on 21-22 October 2021: FNBP / SICOOB cooperation

Marco Almada, SICOOB (Brazil) President’s speech to the French Board members in Strasbourg.

André Joffre’s, Chairman of the National Federation of Banques Populaires, thank you words: The 5th University of Administrators took place under the sign of conviviality and openness to Europe. Two days were nourished by a strong community of speakers helping the guests to better understand the challenges ahead.

The cooperative nature gives a head start, a natural force that forges our style, establishes our difference, and wins the preference of our customers.

It is our individual and even more collective and cooperative intelligence that allows us to stay on course, always the same: have our Banques Populaires continuously evolve at the service of their members, their employees and their territories.

Finally, our plurality, a reflection of the originality and quality of the governance of our banks, promotes mutual enrichment and openness to the world.

CIBP | 70th Anniversary 1950-2020

June 16th, 2020

In 1949, Pierre Montfajon (President of Crédit Populaire de France) had a European vision of the role that the Banques Populaires could play, so he set up the International Confederation of Credit Populaire (CICP) and became its President. The idea for Popular banks to confederate was thus precursor of the European Union.

Big Thank you to the inspiring presidents and other leaders who reinforce the best practices to be put in place to better serve their stakeholders.
Cooperative and popular banks members are the ones still today to uplift the self-help and social responsibility values, and to develop their region and local businesses.

They highly contribute to the ideals of the cooperative business model as an answer to the economy. In the new era, CIBP stays relevant in the promotion of popular banks cooperative values and achievements worldwide.
