The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognise hard work and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged. The day of festivities for credit unions and financial cooperatives globally includes fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteering and parades. This year’s theme is “Inspiring hope for a global community.” On October 15, 2020, join your global credit union family as we celebrate the 72nd anniversary of ICU Day!
