International Credit Union Day


International Credit Union Day

Come celebrate International Credit Union (ICU) Day®  with us. ICU day celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognize the hard work and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948.

The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged.

Starting Monday, October 14th, we will have goodies at each of our branches and on October 17th all the branches will have a special celebration along with some FREE Giveaways.

We will also be having an online contest for those on social media. Every day from October 7th – October 17th, we will be posting credit union trivia questions. Every correct answer will get you 1 point. The person with the most points will win an ECHO SPOT!!

You will also see another post encouraging you to share your favorite part of being a Greater Alliance Credit Union member or a gif that representS how you feel about Credit Union’s. Commenting with your experience or a gif and using the hashtag #ICUDAY will earn you another 3 points to win the ECHO SPOT. Be sure to visit our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages for more details.
