On October 19, 2017, 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, HUECU invites its members and the entire community to celebrate all week long.

Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives that provide an effective and viable alternative to for-profit financial institutions for over 235 million members in 109 countries worldwide. More than 68,000 credit unions exist globally, providing a plethora of financial services for their members, recognized as a force for positive economic and social change.

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 and financial cooperative difference. This year’s theme, “Dreams Thrive Here,” celebrates how credit union and other financial cooperatives serve as catalysts to make different professions, personal choices and career paths real.

International Credit Union Day is recognized by the World Council of Credit Unions, the global trade association and development agency for credit unions and other financial cooperatives, as well as numerous national credit union trade associations and federations around the world.
