International Credit Union (ICU) Day is rapidly approaching, and it’s a great opportunity to celebrate our achievements, reflect on our history, recognize dedicated staff, and most importantly, acknowledge and thank our members, who stand at the heart of everything we do.
Are you looking for ways to celebrate? Here are some ideas to engage your members and staff on this special day!
Member Appreciation Day. Dedicate your celebration to your members. Offer refreshments in your branches, or send commemorative giveaways.
Personalized Notes. Show you value your staff’s contributions. Send hand-written thank you notes, creating your own ICU-Day-themed cards.
Financial Education Workshops. Organize financial education workshops or interactive games to empower members with financial knowledge.
Community Involvement. Encourage staff to participate in community service or volunteer activities. Share your efforts on social media with #ICUDay.
Referral Programs. Reward members for referring new members to the credit union.
Professional Development. Invest in staff development by offering training, certifications, or opportunities for career growth within the credit union. DakCU offers a variety of options!
Team-Building Activities. Organize team-building events, outings, or activities to foster a sense of camaraderie. Matching T-shirts, anyone?
