Happy International Credit Union (ICU) Day! Today celebrates the 70th anniversary of ICU Day and 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 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 include fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteering, and parades.

Share what your credit union is doing for ICU day by sending details and photos to the LSCU at submissions@lscu.coop.
