Get ready for International Credit Union day!

International Credit Union (ICU) Day® will be held on Thursday 20th October 2022 and will celebrate the spirit of the global credit union movement. The day is recognised to reflect upon the credit union movement's history, promote its achievements, recognise hard work and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948.

The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged. The day of festivities for credit unions and financial cooperatives globally includes fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteering and parades.

Credit Unions from across the globe are being encouraged to prepare to endorse the day and share stories about how they are providing financial services, guidance and relief to help members and communities overcome everyday hurdles, unexpected loss or disaster. Credit Unions celebrating the day can use the hashtag #ICUDay on social media to raise awareness about the movement’s work.
