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 the 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 include fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteering and parades.
Our theme for 2019 was: Local Service. Global Reach.
Official ICU Day 2019 posters and logos are still available below for download and print.
On October 15, 2020, join your global credit union family as we celebrate the 72nd anniversary of ICU Day®! The theme for this year's ICU Day will be announced in early 2020.
