International Credit Union (ICU) Day was established to remember the credit union movement’s history and to promote its achievements. It is also a day for the Credit Union to show appreciation for its members.
ICU Day has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. Credit unions and associations throughout the world celebrate the day with fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics and parades.
“Not only are we proud of our roots, but also what the credit union movement is still doing today. Credit unions were started for members, by members.
