International Credit Union Day celebrates the history, tradition and spirit of the international credit union movement. Established in 1948, International Credit Union Day is celebrated annually on the third Thursday in October, bringing people together to reflect upon their cooperative history, credit union achievements and to promote the credit union idea around the world. It's a holiday that crosses religious, political, cultural and language barriers - one that can be enjoyed by everyone.

Members of World Council celebrate the day with open houses, picnics, fairs, and parades. International Credit Union Day is an open invitation to more than 136 million members in 43,147 credit unions around the world to share the credit union experience.

"It's up to individuals, credit unions, chapters, leagues and members from movements around the world to select their favorite ICU Day theme for 2006," noted Kimberly Johnston, WOCCU marketing and communications officer. "Part of the credit union difference is that we are democratically organized and operated institutions. What better way to celebrate ICU Day than to have the theme picked democratically by members, staff and volunteers around the world."
