Since 1948, the third Thursday of October has been designated International Credit Union (ICU) Day® – offering an opportunity to celebrate and recognize the global credit union movement. On this 73rd anniversary of ICU Day®, we want to highlight a few of our clients and the good work they are doing in their communities, brilliantly reflecting the spirit of this year’s theme: “Building Financial Health For A Brighter Tomorrow.”
