Ten no budget ideas for ICU Day
MADISON, Wis. (9/24/09)--If credit unions have no budget for International Credit Union Day (ICU) celebrations on Oct. 15, no problem, says the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Joanne Sepich, ICU Day coordinator for CUNA, has 10 ideas for resourceful staffs. They include:
* Add an ICU Day poster design to your website; * Print signs for your branch announcing your plans; * Color. Put out crayons and coloring pages to entertain children; * Open the door. Valley Oak CU, Three Rivers, Calif., opens doors all day long, giving staff the opportunity to personally thank members; * Clean windshields in the drive-up--another idea from Valley Oak CU; * Put out Small Change, Big Difference boxes to help credit unions worldwide; * Hold a book drive, and donate books to a school or library in need; * Cook off. Hold a “best treats” cook-off contest for staff to feed members on Oct. 15; * Send a letter to the editor of a local paper; and * Dress up for the occasion. Employees at Chemical FCU in Texas dress in attire native to countries around the world.
