With just a little more than a month until International Credit Union Day (ICU Day), CUNA has announced this year’s theme is “Empower Your Financial Future with a 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. Festivities often include community fundraisers, contests, and picnics.
October is also Cybersecurity Awareness Month and a great time to help individuals protect themselves online as threats to technology and confidential data become more commonplace.
“Ultimately our goal is for more people to understand the important role credit unions play in their community,” said Megan Crowson, manager of consumer engagement for CUNA. “If we can encourage someone to reach out to a credit union for help on their financial journey, then this program was a success!”
To help credit unions celebrate and further their mission, CUNA offers a wide range of resources including customizable materials as well as no-cost and fee-based creative bundles designed to educate consumers about the value credit unions provide.
No-cost resources include:
