Celebrate International Credit Union Day!

Celebrate International Credit Union Day with Silver State Schools Credit Union!

International Credit Union is on Thursday, October 17! Stop by one of the branches for cookies and help us celebrate by donating to our "Underwear/Outerwear" drive for students and families of our three adopted schools

The credit union idea arose centuries ago as people worked under a common effort without thought of profit – they put out fires, harvested crops, and avoided high-priced loans by lending to one another.

Unlike many banks, we at Silver State Schools Credit Union are not in business to make a profit. Credit unions all over the world are a united front focused on you, the members, with an unwavering belief in the “people helping people” philosophy upon which we were built.

In the U.S., we’re known as credit unions, but across the world, we go by many names…co-operative societies, cooperativas, and caisses populaires to name a few.

The U.S. Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and CUNA Mutual Insurance Society initiated a new national Credit Union Day celebration in 1948. The third Thursday of October was set aside as the national day of observance. This occasion brought members together to promote the credit union philosophy nationally and reflect upon credit union achievements and history. Members raised funds for the movement and paid homage to loyal supporters and pioneers.

Since the first International Credit Union (ICU) Day more than 30 years ago, the credit union movement has grown to 196 million members in 100 countries. Celebrate the credit union difference during this year’s ICU Day – October 17, 2013.
