On October 17, 2019, East River Federal Credit Union will join with 56,000 credit unions around the world in celebration of International Credit Union (ICU) Day®.

There are 200+ million credit union members around the world—more than 100 million in the U.S. alone—and East River Federal Credit Union joins 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 East River 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 and celebrate with East River Federal Credit Union a movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people. We will have a door prize drawing and serve refreshments all day in our lobby. Please join us!

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has proclaimed Thursday, October 17th as Credit Union Day in South Dakota. On this day, credit unions worldwide will come together to celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) and the role that financial cooperatives play in improving the lives of their members.
