International Credit Union Day 2021
International Credit Union (ICU) Day® is celebrated each year on the third Thursday in October. The event, while a global one, offers excellent opportunities to promote credit unions at local level, while also informing the community about the real and beneficial impact credit unions have on people’s lives the world over. The credit union movement’s cooperative spirit is embraced by 291 million members served by more than 86,000 credit unions in 118 countries worldwide.
International Credit Union day takes place this year on Thursday 21st October. WOCCU has chosen the theme ‘Building financial health for a brighter tomorrow’ to mark this year’s celebration. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to challenge the financial well-being of credit union members around the globe. This theme highlights the way credit unions are responding to that challenge by working with members to help them rebuild their livelihoods.
