It’s nearly time to celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day).
As part of the World Council of Credit Unions' family, there are several of ways you can celebrate ICU Day 2019 on Oct. 17 and grow the global credit union movement!
The Cornerstone Credit Union League and the World Council encourage credit unions across the globe to engage in ICU Day 2019 in any or all the following ways:
- Plan a festive week for your credit union. Hold an open house or a “guest day” at your office or one of you credit union branches. Or better yet, plan a theme party for ICU Day and wear costumes!
- Implement Community Projects. You could plant a tree on your credit union grounds, sponsor a community cleanup effort, hold a bike safety clinic or—since you know your community better than anyone—come up with your own special project to say “thank you” to members.
- Take photos and videos of your ICU Day. If you have a celebration or activity planned—this is a natural. But even if it’s a normal day at your office or branch—take time to gather staff for a group photo or shoot a quick video of everyone shouting Happy ICU Day from (name your credit union here)!
You can also engage your staff and members with this year's “Local Service. Global Reach” theme by using ICU Day materials, gear, and customizable assets, including:
Discover new ways to celebrate at your credit union with inspiration from other credit unions and how they celebrated in 2018. Together we're changing lives and communities across the globe.
Let the celebration begin.
