CUs Prepare To Unite For Good On 2013 ICU Day

MADISON, Wis. (7/25/13)--The theme of this year's International Credit Union (ICU) Day, Oct. 17, is "Credit Unions Unite for Good," the Credit Union National Association announced.
 
"We are coming off a great Unite for Good impact at America's Credit Union Conference (ACUC) in New York City," said Paul Gentile, CUNA executive vice president, strategic communications and engagement. "Now is the time to take that message and drive it across the nation. This year's ICU Day initiative, 'Unite for Good,' is the perfect way to bring credit unions together around a common cause that will make a huge difference with both national and local impact."
 
This year's theme conveys the credit union movement's shared vision of uniting behind its worthwhile cause. The message speaks to the powerful global network of credit unions and the advantages that result from sharing challenges, experiences and solutions to better serve members, CUNA said.
 
Credit unions can celebrate the movement on ICU Day and use it as impetus for making a difference in their communities. Using CUNA's tools and resources, interested credit unions can make a local impact this fall.
 
CUNA's suggestions for local action include:

  • Initiate a small-business day;
  • Team up with other local credit unions;
  • Hold a financial simulation or reality fair;
  • Host a series of after-hour financial education seminars;
  • Host a Don't Tax My Credit Union event; and
  • Organize a Capitol Tour/Hike the Hill Day.
