Celebrating International Credit Union Day
Thursday, October 17, 2019
On October 17, 2019, Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union will join with 56,000 credit unions around the world in celebration of International Credit Union (ICU) Day®.
Spirit of Alaska will be celebrating with cookies and juice for members at all three branches from 10am to 6pm.
Local Service. Global Reach.
There are 200+ million credit union members around the world—more than 100 million in the U.S. alone—and we are joining them in celebration of the not-for-profit cooperative spirit that all credit unions share.
This cooperative spirit has led to life-changing opportunities for people all over the world who’ve wanted to start a small business, own a home or continue their education but were denied access to other financial institutions. In many parts of the world, people’s first taste of democracy is through their credit union, where “one member, one vote” is the governing structure.
At its most basic level, a credit union is people pooling their money to provide each other with affordable loans—it is literally people helping people. This is why Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union celebrates ICU Day. Because credit unions empower people, wherever they are in the world or life, to take control of their financial future.
The public is welcome to stop by our International Credit Union Day event at one of our branches and celebrate with Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union a movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people.
