International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) is a day dedicated to recognizing the credit union movement throughout history, honor those who dedicate their lives to the movement, recognize the hard work of industry employees, and to show CU members appreciation.
ICU Day has been celebrated every third Thursday of October since 1948. This year’s theme, celebrated on October 15th, was “People Helping People,” a philosophy mended into credit unions’ hearts. Read on to see how credit unions around the world celebrated International Credit Union Day.
Credit unions run on the philosophy of “People Helping People” and with this, credit unions around the world contribute to and support their local communities as not-for-profit financial institutions that give back in the form of low fees and interest rates, financial literacy, and more. Credit unions across the nation “walked the walk” across the country on August 4th by partaking in National Night Out in their communities.
