Oct. 20th. – International Credit Union Day
International Credit Union Day has been celebrated by the World Council of Credit Unions on the third Thursday of October since 1948. The day is set aside to reflect upon the history of the credit union movement and to promote the achievements.
The 2016 International Credit Union (ICU) Day® theme — “The Authentic Difference” — that celebrates what makes credit unions truly unique.
Credit unions differ — in both philosophy and structure — from other financial institutions, in addition to community commitment and positive economic and social change, they put people before profit to provide all members with affordable financial services. This is the authentic difference that makes a real impact in our world.
