CU System
Follow promote ICU Day events on Twitter at icuday11
MADISON, Wis. (10/13/11)--Credit unions are preparing for International Credit Union (ICU) Day on Oct. 20--just one week away--with all kinds of activities. They also should plan to follow others' and promote their own activities on ICU Day's Twitter account. Credit unions across the country can use #icuday11 as a hashtag to tweet their efforts. Tweeting will help promote credit unions, show their fun side, and engage the general public by using social media. Users new to Twitter can get some tips from the North Carolina Credit Union League's website. Use the link. This year's ICU Day theme, "Credit Unions Build a Better World," celebrates the economic and social contributions credit unions make to their communities worldwide. Financial cooperatives around the globe will celebrate their heritage and contributions on Oct. 20. "International Credit Union Day offers a unique opportunity to show our appreciation to our members--the folks who make it possible for credit unions to exist," said Sean M. Rathjen, president of Waukegan, Ill.-based Consumers CU. "This is a day to thank members for their business, to share a little credit union history and showcase the many wonderful benefits the movement has to offer." Members stopping by Consumers CU's six branches on ICU Day will be greeted by managers and staff and can enjoy treats and a gift "as a token of our appreciation," Rathjen said. FORUM CU, Indianapolis, Ind., plans to celebrate all week, with its "FORUM Financial Week," beginning Sunday through Oct. 21. Activities at its 12 branches will include free credit checks, budgeting with a branch representative, savings specials and kids' activities. Since October is Co-op Month, the United Nations and the cooperative business sector will launch 2012 International Year of Cooperatives on Oct. 31.
