The 2022 theme for the special event is Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union™.
“Credit unions, with their special emphasis on superior service to their members, have long been one of the mainstays of our business,” notes Joseph Sefcik, founder and president of Employment Technologies. “Credit unions and related financial service organizations have relied on our job simulations and virtual hiring tools for nearly three decades to identify job candidates best qualified for key financial services roles.”
Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October. Each year, the international event recognizes the proud history of credit unions and promotes awareness of and support for credit union and financial cooperative services. The event is recognized by the World Council of Credit Unions as well as numerous national credit union trade associations and federations around the world.

More than 86,000 credit unions exist globally, providing a wide range of financial services for their members, recognized as a force for positive economic and social change.
