    Jason MacDonald, Class of 2000, recently returned from Paraguay, where he traveled as part of a trade group to promote the international credit union movement.

    MacDonald, who majored in management information systems at UW-Superior, is now director of information technology for Central Minnesota Credit Union. He was among the representatives chosen by the Minnesota Credit Union Network and World Councils of Credit Unions to visit Asuncion, Paraguay, to promote credit unions.

    During the visit, MacDonald met with Paraguay's acting president and members of the cabinet to discuss the importance of credit unions and technology.

    The president, who is a credit union member, expressed his support for credit unions. He said strong and prosperous cooperatives are key to the country's continued economic growth.
