This year’s theme for International Credit Union Day is “Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union.” ICU Day will take place on Thursday, Oct. 20.
ICU Day festivities include community fundraisers, contests, picnics, and parades. Sponsored by CUNA Strategic Services partner Zogo Finance, the annual celebration aims to help more people improve their financial well-being through accessible and affordable products and services provided by their local credit union.
The “empower” concept encourages credit unions to look beyond the borders of their local communities to donate to the campaign in support of growing credit union membership through credit union development while sharing stories of empowerment locally, nationally, and internationally.
“There are still 1.4 billion people across the globe who are unbanked,” said Elissa McCarter Laborde, president/CEO of World Council of Credit Unions. “Credit unions truly have the perfect business model to empower their financial future, and that is a message we hope our entire global movement will celebrate and promote on Thursday, Oct. 20.”
