On Oct. 15, 2015, credit union members around the world will celebrate International Credit Union Day®, an annual event to commemorate the credit union movement’s impact and achievements. In honor of this special day and month, we invite our members in for cookies and goodies on Thursday, October 15th at all of our locations.
Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October. Each year, the international event affords the opportunity to remember credit unions’ proud history and promote awareness of and support for the credit union difference. This year’s theme, “People Helping People®,” embraces the longstanding credit union philosophy.
In honor of this philosophy, R.I.A. is hosting a United Way campaign at all of our locations. You will see employees going casual for a cause, having pot lucks and bake sales, and other fundraising efforts to have a positive impact on the people in our communities.
Credit unions are recognized as a force for positive economic and social change and have provided significant value in both developed and emerging nations. International Credit Union Day is sponsored by World Council of Credit Unions, the international trade association and development agency for credit unions, as well as numerous national credit union trade associations and federations around the world.
On Oct. 15, credit unions from around the world will join forces to celebrate the day with membership drives, contests and fundraisers to help out their local communities. Credit unions will share their activities with the global community on social media using #ICUDay.
