International Credit Union Day

Thank you for another great event!

International Credit Union Day will return in 2024

We joined credit unions across the nation for International Credit Union Day on Thursday, October 18, 2023 in celebration of what it means to be a part of a credit union.  The credit union difference is what sets us apart from other financial institutions. We are not-for-profit, community-based, federally insured and most importantly, we are owned by YOU — our loyal member-owners.

International Credit Union Day may be over, but we believe in celebrating the credit union spirit and the members that make this place so special. Stay tuned for more Member Appreciation Days in the future, and we look forward to celebrating International Credit Union Day again next October.
