Governors in Ark., Okla., and Texas Declare 10/20 as Credit Union Day
Thursday, October 20, 2016 7:00 AM

Happy International Credit Union Day!

The Authentic DifferenceEvery 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.

That's why governors from all three states in the Cornerstone region have made official proclamations declaring Oct. 20, 2016, as 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 League chose to have the proclamations declared on Oct. 20 because it falls on the same day as International Credit Union Day—the day when credit unions across the world come together to let their members know the spirit of the credit union movement:  People helping people.

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