International Credit Union (ICU) Day® celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement. The day is recognised to reflect upon the credit union movement's history, promote its achievements, recognise the 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 great work that credit unions 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 include fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics and parades.
The 2017 International Credit Union (ICU) Day® theme — "Dreams Thrive Here" illustrates how credit union and other financial cooperatives serve as catalysts to make different professions, personal choices and career paths real.
The Church of Scotland continues to support and promote the Credit Union movement and encourages you and your Church to engage with your local credit union. See our leaflets for more information:
