International Credit Union Day

On October 17th, your credit union family will join more than 57,000 other credit unions around the world to celebrate International Credit Union Day! This year’s theme is Local Service. Global reach.

Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October. The day allows all of us the opportunity to reflect upon the credit union history and promote awareness of and support for the credit union difference.

For us, and many of our credit union friends, this day is a time to share and celebrate our members and our mission to provide financial support and guidance through the 7 cooperative principles, which are:

  1. Democratic Control - one member = One vote. Whether you have $5 or $5 million, your voice is equal and most importantly, heard.
  2. Open and Voluntary Membership – members are connected by a bond of association, fostering a sense of community.
  3. Member Economic Participation – members are owners. The more people that participate, the more that can be given back in the form of more products, lower loan rates, higher savings rates, and fewer fees. 
  4. Autonomy and Independence – cooperatives are owned by members, not shareholders, which makes each member the boss.
  5. Financial education, training and information – From budgeting basics to retirement planning and how credit works, credit unions are committed to providing financial education to their members.
  6. Cooperation among Cooperatives – working together, financial cooperatives are there when you need them. Credit Union provide more ATM’s than the world’s largest bank.
  7. Concern for the Community – credit unions are passionate about serving their members and making an impact in the communities we serve.
