Credit unions worldwide celebrate the 75th annual International Credit Union Day

75 years is a significant milestone to achieve. It’s the diamond anniversary, the platinum jubilee, and the semi-sesquicentennial celebration. 75 years calls for grand celebrations, and the credit union industry will deliver exactly that on October 19th, 2023, when it celebrates the 75th annual International Credit Union Day.

For three-quarters of a century, credit unions, cooperatives, CUSOs, and their supporters worldwide have been using this day to not only remind credit unions and their members what the industry stands for but of what they can achieve together and the bright financial futures they can empower. This year, the event’s 75th, promises to bring all the fanfare the occasion deserves.
