ICU Day FREE Resources
International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) is Thursday, October 21. Each year, we come together to celebrate ICU Day to raise awareness about what it means for members around the world to have a credit union as their financial partner. This year's ICU Day theme, “Building financial health for a brighter tomorrow,” reflects the way credit unions contribute to a brighter future by working to improve members' financial well-being. It is at the heart of the mission and structure of credit unions. International Credit Union Day is brought to you by Credit Union National Association and World Council of Credit Unions.
