International Credit Union Day is approaching, and credit unions are reminded that marketing materials and resources are available on CUNA’s website. This year’s ICU Day will be held Thursday, Oct. 17.
This year’s ICU Day theme is “Local Service. Global Reach.” According to the World Council of Credit Unions, the theme is intended to capture the “focus and scope” of credit unions and further explain their mission on how each credit union serves a local community globally.
The ultimate goal of the celebration is to raise awareness about the tremendous work credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged. During ICU Day, credit unions around the world host fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteer initiatives, parades and more.
