Theme selected for International Credit Union Day 2022

“Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union” is the theme of this year’s International Credit Union (ICU) Day, to be celebrated this year on Thursday 20 October 2022.

This annual event raises global awareness for the credit union movement through outreach, volunteering, fundraising and other ICU Day-themed activities. Since the first celebration in 1948, ICU Day is a chance to spotlight and celebrate these achievements.

President and CEO of the World Council of Credit Unions Elissa McCarter LaBorde, said: 

“There are still 1.4 billion people across the globe who are unbanked. Credit unions truly have the perfect business model to empower their financial future and that is a message we hope our entire global movement will celebrate and promote on Thursday, October 20." 

ICU Day 2022 materials, including this year’s logo, poster and colouring page are now available at
