Cornerstone Wishes You a Happy Credit Union Day!

Every day, in America and around the world, millions of people are touched by credit unions. As not-for-profit financial cooperatives, credit unions are governed not by financial gain, but by an unwavering commitment to help people meet their financial goals so their dreams have a chance to thrive.

That's why governors from all three states in the Cornerstone region have made official proclamations declaring Oct. 19, 2017, as Credit Union Day in addition to International Credit Union Day. Gov. Mary Fallin in Oklahoma, Gov. Asa Hutchinson in Arkansas, and Gov. Greg Abbott in Texas have announced their support and acknowledged the many contributions of credit unions to the communities they serve.

The proclamations are a great way to show the public that credit unions are a strong economic and social force. This year's theme, "Dreams Thrive Here" emphasizes the distinct positive impact credit unions have on communities around the world. Following are the links to the proclamations.
