International Credit Union (ICU) Day® celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement.
The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognize hard work and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948.
The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged. The day of festivities for credit unions and financial cooperatives globally includes fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteering and parades.
The 74th anniversary of International Credit Union Day® is set for Thursday, October 20, 2022. This year, we will gather as a global movement under the theme: “Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union™.”
We encourage credit unions around the globe to share social media stories of member empowerment on ICU Day. World Council shared one such example on Episode 16 of The Global Credit Union Podcast. You can hear that here.
You can also plan to join World Council on Thursday, October 20 for ICU Day 2022 EMPOWER Webinar.
International Credit Union Day is brought to you by World Council of Credit Unions and Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and sponsored by CUNA Strategic Services partner Zogo Finance.
