Are you as excited as we are to celebrate International Credit Union Day on Oct. 19, 2017?
It’s a day to share your experiences as a member and to reflect upon all the benefits you enjoy by being a part of your credit union. It’s also a day to have fun! Credit unions vary in how they celebrate, but some of the typical celebrations include contests, fundraisers or free promotional materials at local branches. At SIU Credit Union, we are having another Super Shredder event at our Carbondale East location, and you’re welcome to come in to any of our branches and enjoy a cookie and some fellowship.
As it’s done in the past, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will team up with Credit Unions for Kids for Shop for Miracles 2017. All participating credit unions will make a donation to a local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for each transaction that’s made by their members on ICU Day.
Each year, CUNA and the World Council of Credit Unions chooses a theme for ICU Day. This year’s theme, which was selected via an online poll of credit union professionals, is “Dreams Thrive Here.” As a credit union member, you know this statement is true. Credit unions help your dreams thrive by helping to make them possible.
