This year’s International Credit Union Day theme, “CUs Unite for Good,” conveys the credit union movement’s shared vision of uniting behind our worthwhile cause. This message speaks to the powerful global network of credit unions, and the advantages that result from sharing challenges, experiences and solutions with one another to better serve members.
International CU Day is Oct. 17, and credit unions are encouraged to celebrate the movement by using it as an impetus for making a difference in their communities. Using CUNA’s tools and resources, any credit union interested can make a local impact this fall.
CUNA’s suggestions for local action include:
Initiate a small business day
Team up with other local credit unions
Hold a financial simulation or reality fair
Host a series of after-hour financial education seminars
Host a Don’t Tax My Credit Union event
Organize a Capital Tour/Hike the Hill Day
