Out Here, We Celebrate Credit Union Day!
The best part about being a credit union is we get our very own holiday! Every third Thursday of October is always Credit Union Day and we’re excited to celebrate this year with 62,882 global credit unions and 235,762,076 members.
International Credit Union Day celebrates the global credit union movement and recognizes financial cooperatives around the world.
Credit unions are different than banks – we are member owned financial institutions and every person who banks with us owns a little piece of the credit union. Members can vote in our board elections, seek election themselves, receive share dividends, and more!
Come celebrate cooperatives with us, learn about them, and also learn about our upcoming system upgrade!
We look forward to seeing you on October 19th!
