Today is International Credit Union Day.  First celebrated in 1960, it…oh, what am I doing?  You know all this already!  But were you aware CUNA has made available loads of resources to best embrace the spirit (and publicity) of the day?  Simply visit CUNA’s ICU Day site for sample social media posts, history, beautiful banners and quotes, along with links to charitable efforts and much more.  Below is a poster which sums it all up.

Of course, knowing you’re part of something greater can inspire an emotional connection.  Unlike baseball’s World Series, this International celebration really does span the whole planet.

Belize quote

Veteran credit union staff and members may remember when the first ICU Day was celebrated.  Talk to them to empower yourself and others with the true spirit of the effort.
Eisenhower quote

At the end of the day, you can bank anywhere.  Why should a person become a member of your credit union?  Sometimes, going back to your roots and looking to the past for inspiration can create a brighter future.  Happy International Credit Union Day!  I’ll be engaging with credit unions throughout the day on Twitter.  Join the conversation with #ICUDay or directly at @CUNA (their official account) and @JoeCUGeek (that’s me).
