International Credit Union Day theme announced

ICU_Day_2017_Logo_EN-page-001 - CopyThis year’s International Credit Union Day, which takes place on 19 October 2017, will have the theme “Dreams Thrive Here.”

International Credit Union Day takes place every year on the third Thursday in October and, this year, credit union professionals decided the theme via an online poll.

All 56,000 credit unions around the world are being encouraged to share photos, events and experiences online to help promote the movement. The day aims to raise awareness of the contribution that credit unions make to society.

Brian Branch, President and Chief Executive of the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), said: “ICU Day gives us an opportunity to encourage credit union members to get engaged, share their experiences and celebrate how credit unions and financial co-operatives have made an impact on their life choices.”
