International Credit Union Day looks back at history

Why was school easier for cavemen? Because they had no history!

We all know that’s not true about credit unions. The credit union movement is steeped in a rich history of collaboration across divides. For nearly two centuries, financial cooperatives have encouraged people of every race, gender, and belief to come together and give their all towards the betterment of their communities. It’s about people helping people. That’s why credit unions always offer a platinum lining.

This year, save the date of Oct. 18 when we will celebrate International Credit Union Day’s platinum anniversary, a chance to look back after 70 years and be thankful for the lives and communities that have been improved by the unique principles and actions of our movement. To celebrate this anniversary, we ask that you send us pictures of your credit union in action “back in the day!”

Dig up those black and whites, and email copies to Juli Lewis, the SECUF Director at secuf@lscu.coop or juli.lewis@lscu.coop. Send pics by the end of September to have your credit union included in a special project!
