International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement's history and to promote its achievements. It is a day to honor those who have dedicated their lives to the movement, recognize the hard work of those working in the credit union industry and show members our appreciation.
The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the great work that credit unions are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more involved. Credit unions and associations throughout the world celebrate the day with open houses, contests, picnics and parades.
World Council of Credit Unions has provided its members with ICU Day materials for over 30 years. Check back here for this year's materials as we get closer to the day!
World Council no longer distributes posters. Promotional materials, logo and other ideas to help celebrate International Credit Union Day will soon be available.
