2019 International Credit Union Day
On Thursday October 17, 2019, MCWV joined 56,000 credit unions around the world to celebrate International Credit Union Day! To celebrate, we enjoyed cake, refreshments, door prizes and cash giveaways with our members, and offered a CD Special.
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 we celebrate ICU Day. Because credit unions empower people, wherever they are in the world or life, to take control of their financial future.
This year’s theme was “Local Service. Global Reach.” emphasizing the 200+ million credit union members around the world—more than 100 million in the U.S. alone—and 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.
2018 International Credit Union Day
Thursday October 18, 2018 marked the 70th anniversary of International Credit Union Day! Along with 56,000 credit unions around the world, MCWV celebrated ICU Day and the philosophy and achievements of the credit union movement!
Cake, refreshments, door prizes and cash giveaways were enjoyed by members who joined us on ICU Day!
This year’s theme was “Find Your Platinum Lining” to celebrate the history and the success of the “People-not-Profit” philosophy. “Find Your Platinum Lining” emphasizes the credit union movement’s loyalty to its members and its mission to provide them financial support and guidance. Thank you for joining us for ICU Day!

We have had a fantastic time Thursday, October 19th celebrating International Credit Union Day! This year’s ICU Day theme was “Dreams Thrive Here,” a celebration of how credit unions help people achieve their biggest goals in life.
We wore our “Stash Your Cash” t-shirts to remind members that building a strong savings is one great way the credit union can help their dreams thrive! Spread the word of your credit union and encourage your friends and family to join!
We truly believe here at MCWV that the not-for-profit structure and people-first principles of credit unions are the ideal financial partner for all people, and we’re honored to serve you!
