Celebrated ICU Day With Eaton Family Credit Union
Around the world and locally at Eaton Family Credit Union, the third Thursday of October is recognized and celebrated as International Credit Union Day. This year, ICU Day is October 19.
“On ICU Day, we reflect on the credit union movement's history and try to promote its achievements,” Eaton Family Credit Union CEO Mike Losneck said. “It’s a day to honor those who dedicated their lives to the movement, recognize the hard work of those working in the credit union industry and show members our appreciation.”
Several activities are planned to celebrate ICU Day, Losneck said. Encouraging friends and family to become Members also is a great way to show support for your local credit union.
During the week of October 16 – 21, when a Member refers a friend or family member who becomes a Member of Eaton Family Credit Union, they’ll both receive a $25 bonus added to their Share Savings Accounts, Losneck explained. “Just be sure to have the new Member provide your name when they complete their application.”
In 1948, credit unions across America, and later around the world, began celebrating the philosophy and achievements of credit unions every year on ICU Day.
This year’s theme is “Dreams Thrive Here,” illustrating how credit unions and other financial cooperatives serve as catalysts to make different professions, personal choices and career paths real, Losneck explained. “It’s meant to be a reminder of how effective credit unions like us are at helping all people chase and achieve their biggest dreams in life.”
Credit unions are nonprofits so their primary purpose is - and always has been - to be of service to their members. This people-first philosophy doesn’t just mean better service, it translates into higher rates of return on savings accounts, lower rates on loans, and fewer and lower fees than other financial institutions, Losneck explained.
Membership in Eaton Family Credit Union is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or goes to school in Lake or Cuyahoga counties, Ohio, as well as employees of our Select Employer Groups.
