Credit union activities on International Credit Union Day Thursday ranged from the foot stomping–live bluegrass music–to the more conservative–a discussion on the role of supervisory committees. But celebrations nationwide highlighted a common theme: Members Matter Most.
Credit unions have celebrated ICU Day on the third Thursday of October since 1948. The day reflects upon the credit union movement’s history and promotes its achievements. It is a day to recognize the dedication of those working in the credit union industry, to appreciate current members and to invite eligible consumers to join credit unions.
Credit unions and chapters throughout North Carolina celebrated ICU Day last week, according to the North Carolina Credit Union League (The Weekly Conversation Oct. 19).
Among the ways North Carolina chapters celebrated:
- Forty people gathered for the Foothills Chapter celebration in Hickory Tuesday evening. Magician Sammy Cortino provided entertainment. The chapter awarded prizes, including gift cards to local restaurants and gas stations. Attendees also donated jars of peanut butter for the Greater Hickory Co-operative Christian Ministry.
