Credit Union Day is Thursday 18th


The 70th International Credit Union Day is being celebrated around the world on Thursday, October 18th.

The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognize the hard work and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948.

The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged. The day of festivities for credit unions and financial cooperatives globally include fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteering and parades.

North Valley Credit Union branches at Esterhazy and Stockholm will offer cookies, coffee, and prizes on October 18th to visitors to celebrate the event.
