Building financial health for a brighter tomorrow

JACKSON, MI (October 12, 2021) — American 1 Credit Union will join over 56,000 credit unions worldwide to celebrate International Credit Union (ICU) Day. The theme of ICU Day 2021 is “Building financial health for a brighter tomorrow.”

ICU Day highlights the many ways that credit unions across the world help members improve their financial health and well-being.

American 1 is celebrating ICU Day with a free thank you gift while supplies last. To receive the gift, members should stop by any branch location during regular hours of operation on Thursday, October 21.

“International Credit Union Day offers an opportunity to bring special awareness to not only the services we provide to better our community, but also our appreciation for those who continue to trust us with their financial wellness,” said Martha Fuerstenau, American 1 Credit Union President/CEO. “We are proud of our long-standing history as a credit union who has remained true to our roots since 1950.”

Credit unions were built on the principle of “people helping people.” That philosophy has been in action for more than 100 years, with credit unions providing access to affordable financial products and striving to meet the needs of underserved communities. American 1 Credit Union is honored to be a part of this proud tradition.

International Credit Union Day is brought to you by Credit Union National Association and World Council of Credit Unions. This year’s event is proudly sponsored by Harland Clarke. Learn more at
