CUs Around the World Celebrate International CU Day Oct. 17
Wednesday, September 25, 2013 6:40 AM

On Oct. 17, 2013, credit unions around the world will celebrate International Credit Union Day®, an annual event to commemorate the credit union movement’s impact and achievements. In honor of this special day, the Cornerstone Credit Union League is encouraging credit unions to participate by engaging in such activities as hosting an open house, conducting a membership drive, and holding contests and fundraisers to help out their local communities.

Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October. Each year, the international event affords the opportunity to remember credit unions’ proud history and promote awareness of and support for the credit union difference. This year’s theme, “Credit Unions Unite for Good: A Better Way,” emphasizes the benefits of cooperation among credit unions worldwide. It also speaks to the powerful global network of 56,000 credit unions, which no other financial institution can claim, and the advantages that result from sharing challenges, experiences and solutions with one another to better serve members.

Credit unions are recognized as a force for positive economic and social change and have provided significant value in both developed and emerging nations. International Credit Union Day is sponsored by World Council of Credit Unions, the international trade association and development agency for credit unions, as well as numerous national credit union trade associations and federations around the world.

League-affiliated credit unions are encouraged to share how they will be celebrating International Credit Union Day, by emailing your plans to lwebb-manon@cornerstoneleague.coop.
