On October 17, 2019, AmeriCU members and credit union members around the world celebrated International Credit Union Day!
Celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October, International Credit Union Day® is an event held to commemorate the credit union movement’s impact and achievements. Each year, International Credit Union Day affords our members the opportunity to remember credit unions’ proud history and promote awareness of and support for the credit union and financial cooperative difference.
This year’s theme, Local Service. Global Reach., was designed to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the globe, and give our members the opportunity to get more engaged. In honor of this special day, AmeriCU invited members to visit their local financial center for a celebration, including food and drink, coloring sheets for kids, and a colorful display to celebrate the day.
