International Credit Union (ICU) Day® celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement's history, promote its achievements, recognize hard work and share member experiences. International 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. The day of festivities for credit unions and financial cooperatives globally includes fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteering and parades.
On October 15, 2020, our global credit union family joined together to celebrate the 72nd anniversary of ICU Day®!
Last year's theme was "Inspiring hope for a global community."
The 73rd International Credit Union Day will be held on Thursday, October 21, 2021. The theme for ICU Day 2021 will be announced in March.
