ICUDay

International Credit Union Day is Thursday, October 15th
but we’re celebrating all week long!

Each year we come together to celebrate and raise awareness about what it means for members around the world to have a credit union as their financial partner. This year's global health crisis has been trying for many communities around the world and we believe hope is a resource everyone has a right to experience. This year's #ICUDay theme of “Inspiring Hope for a Global Community” reflects how credit unions contribute to a brighter future by providing financial empowerment to those all over the world through financial services, education, and support. Check out the opportunities you can participate in this week below; both to celebrate with us and Inspire Hope for a Global Community!
