DALLAS (10/11/10)--EECU, Fort Worth, Texas, has earned a Juntos Avanzamos, or “Together We Advance” designation. The Texas Credit Union League will present the credit union with a newly redesigned Juntos Avanzamos flag on Oct. 21--International Credit Union (ICU) Day. To be eligible for the designation, EECU completed an application process and documentation that it serves the Hispanic community in Fort Worth in a comfortable environment. EECU has $1.1 billion in assets. ICU Day is an annual worldwide celebration of the credit union movement on the third Thursday of October. This year’s theme, “Local. Trusted. Serving You,” focuses on credit unions’ trusted, community-focused approach to member service, said the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU). In the U.S., cooperatives celebrate Co-op Month in October. For the first time, the National Cooperative Business Association and its cooperatives will join credit unions and Canadian co-ops to share a common theme and graphics. In Canada, ICU Day coincides with the country’s Co-op Week, Oct. 17-23.
