Recognized this week on October 17th, the day commemorates the philosophy and achievements of credit unions around the world.
Started in 1948, International Credit Union Day is an opportunity to celebrate through charitable fundraisers, volunteer opportunities, open houses, contests, picnics and parades. In the spirit of this year’s theme, “Local Service. Global Reach,” credit unions worldwide will demonstrate how a cooperative spirit has provided life-changing opportunities for members across the globe to achieve major financial milestones like starting a small business, buying a home or continuing education.
“Credit unions play a vital role in empowering members and their local communities to build a bright financial future. We are proud of the role we play in supporting that charter by helping nearly 3,000 credit unions create strong and long-lasting engagement with their members,” said Jana Schmidt, CEO, Harland Clarke. “On International Credit Union Day, we reflect upon the remarkable progression of the credit union movement and celebrate their mission of improving the lives and financial well-being of consumers.”
The support provided by industry leaders Harland Clarke and CUNA provides participating credit unions access to a number of resources, including sample communications, design templates, staff talking points, web graphics, customizable promotional items, social media tool kits, apparel and creative ideas for how institutions can make the most of International Credit Union Day across their locations. These materials, available at www.cuna.org/icuday, help credit unions promote International Credit Union Day, encouraging participation among existing members, prospects and employees.
“International Credit Union Day brings awareness to the cooperative values of credit unions, what credit unions can deliver to consumers and how they impact their communities on a global scale,” said Jim Nussle, President & CEO, Credit Union National Association. “We appreciate Harland Clarke’s ongoing support of this worldwide celebration and the emphasis they place on helping credit unions of all sizes drive meaningful member engagement.”
