World Council of Credit Unions today announced the 2013 International Credit Union (ICU) Day® theme, "Credit Unions Unite for Good: A Better Way," which emphasizes the benefits of cooperation among credit unions worldwide. ICU Day is celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October and will take place this year on Oct. 17, 2013. Artwork in English and Spanish is now available on World Council's website.
"Cooperation within the financial cooperative industry has historically been considered a philosophical principle," said Brian Branch, World Council president and CEO, "but today there is a market-driven business rationale for finding cooperative solutions to consumer demand. It is fitting that we celebrate this year's International Credit Union Day with this recognition — that credit unions uniting for the good of our consumers truly is a better way of doing business."
