International Credit Union Day... October 17, 2013

This year on October 17, 2013, credit unions in 100 countries will celebrate International Credit Union (ICU) Day by banding together and appreciating their members.

As a credit union member, you belong to a global movement in which people help people. Worldwide, 188 million members experience the benefits of belonging to a financial cooperative that believes in and is willing to fight for this year’s message: “United for Good”

Credit unions exist to serve you, the member, not to increase the bottom line. A focus on superb customer service and member satisfaction sets credit unions apart from other financial institutions. As not-for-profit cooperative institutions, credit unions return their earnings to members in the form of higher interest on deposits, lower loan rates, and fewer fees.
