International Credit Union Day® – Oct. 16, 2014
International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement's history and to promote its achievements. It is a day to honor those who have dedicated their lives to the movement, recognize the hard work of those working in the credit union industry and show members our appreciation.
This year's ICU Day will take place on Oct. 16, 2014. Its theme, "Local Service. Global Good.," emphasizes credit unions' positive impact in their communities and around the world.
"ICU Day was established to acknowledge credit unions' strong base in
their communities, both local and global," said Brian Branch, World
Council president and CEO. "This year's theme champions the credit union
model by shining light on the industry's support of charity causes at
the local, national and international levels."
The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the great work that credit unions are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more involved. Credit unions and associations throughout the world celebrate the day with open houses, contests, picnics and parades.
World Council of Credit Unions has provided its members with ICU Day
materials for over 30 years, but it no longer distributes posters. Official ICU Day posters, logos and other graphics are available below for download and print. The U.S. Credit Union National Association (CUNA) also offers a variety of promotional resources to help credit unions prepare for and celebrate ICU Day.
