Local Credit Union Hosted International Credit Union Day Event
On October 19, IBM Southeast Employees' Credit Union, along with more than 56,000 credit unions around the world, celebrated International Credit Union Day (ICU Day), and the philosophy and achievements of the credit union movement.
Members of the community were invited to visit their closest IBMSECU branch from 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 19th, 2017, for giveaways, cookies and refreshments. There was a kids coloring contest the week of October 16th. Deadline to submit coloring pages was Friday, October 10th. There was one winner per branch and winners were contacted no later than Monday, October 23rd.
IBMSECU celebrated ICU Day because it believes the not-for-profit structure and people-first principles of credit unions make them the ideal financial partners for all people. This year’s ICU Day theme was “Dreams Thrive Here,” a celebration of how credit unions help people achieve their biggest goals in life.
The public was welcome to stop by any of their 19 branch locations and celebrate the worldwide movement that has made helping people its No. 1 priority for more than 160 years.
