International Credit Union Day

Local Service, Global Reach - International Credit Union Day 2019On October 17, 2019, Community Powered will join with 56,000 credit unions around the world in celebration of International Credit Union (ICU) Day®. We’ll be offering snacks and beverages at all of our locations to commemorate the celebration.

There are 200+ million credit union members around the world – more than 100 million in the U.S. alone – and Community Powered joins them in celebration of the not-for-profit cooperative spirit that all credit unions share.

This cooperative spirit has led to life-changing opportunities for people all over the world who have wanted to start a small business, own a home or continue their education but were denied access to other financial institutions. In many parts of the world, people’s first taste of democracy is through their credit union, where “one member, one vote” is the governing structure.

At its most basic level, a credit union is people pooling their money to provide each other with affordable loans – it is literally people helping people. This is why Community Powered celebrates ICU Day. Because credit unions empower people, wherever they are in the world or life, to take control of their financial future.
