International CU Day: League Website Features Special Section
Monday, September 30, 2013 6:40 AM

On Oct. 17, International Credit Union Day will provide the opportunity for credit unions to reinforce the philosophy and history of the credit union movement and will feature the theme “Credit Unions Unite for Good: A Better Way.”  How will your credit union prepare for this special day?  The Cornerstone Credit Union League website features a section “International Credit Union Day 2013” to help your credit union prepare for this day of honoring the worldwide credit union movement.

Among other things, the section features an International Credit Union Day Proclamation. There are 34 customized proclamations – one for each chapter. Credit union chapters are encouraged to work together to get the proclamation signed by their respective mayors. There is also a food drive tool-kit. Credit unions are urged to host a chapter-wide food drive, kicking off Oct. 17 and continuing through Nov. 15. The League has created promotional materials to help credit unions implement their food drive. And finally, this special section also features a list of celebration ideas.
