International Credit Union Day 2016
This year’s International Credit Union (ICU) Day takes place on Thursday 20th October and will recognise “The Authentic Difference” offered by credit unions.

The World Council of Credit Unions, which is the global trade association for credit unions, has chosen this year’s theme to highlight what makes credit unions unique. ICU Day has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948 and London Capital Credit Union will be celebrating on 20th October, along with credit unions all over the world.

Martin Groombridge, Chief Executive of London Capital Credit Union, said: Credit unions differ from other financial institutions in their way of working and how they are set up. In addition to community commitment and positive economic and social change, we put people before profit to provide all our members with affordable financial services. This is the authentic difference that makes a real impact in our world.”

This year’s ICU Day poster illustrates the nine credit union principles that contribute to that difference: Democratic control; Open membership; Non-discrimination; Service to members; Distribution to members; Building financial stability; Co-operation; Social responsibility; Ongoing education.

ICU Day is celebrated worldwide by the global credit union movement and the annual event helps to raise awareness of credit unions and ultimately attract more members. Around the world, 217 million people are members of 57,000 credit unions in 105 countries.
