It’s October, and that means International Credit Union Week is this month! In recognition of the event Oct. 18-22, the New York Credit Union Association is teaming up with Cabot Creamery — which, as a co-op, shares the Association’s cooperative spirit and principles – for a variety of initiatives that will no doubt include the award-winning Cabot Creamery cheddar.
This year’s ICU Day theme, “Building financial health for a brighter tomorrow,”™ reflects the way credit unions contribute to a brighter future by working to improve members’ financial well-being. It is at the heart of the mission and structure of credit unions. The essence of this commitment is reflected in each institution’s bylaws and it’s something credit unions have been doing for more than 100 years.
In addition to celebrating International Credit Union Week, International Credit Union Day will be held Thursday, Oct. 21. Credit unions can access 2021 International Credit Union Day marketing materials by visiting CUNA’s website and the WOCCU website.
