International CU Day launches for 2011
MADISON, Wis. (7/13/11)--International Credit Union (ICU) Day--with the theme “Credit Unions Build a Better World”--is Oct. 20. Through the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) website, credit unions can access resources to thank members on ICU Day and begin celebrating the International Year of Cooperatives. Among the resources the CUNA website offers:
* Art--Download the poster design, website icon and coloring page; * Copy--Borrow wording on the history of ICU Day and the press release announcing ICU Day; * Celebration ideas--See how other credit unions celebrated in the past, and share plans for 2011; and * Promotional products--Purchase gifts to thank current members and welcome new ones.
With the selection of a new vendor, CUNA offers better pricing on products, especially those bought in bulk, according to JoAnne Sepich, ICU Day coordinator. “We’ve really made an effort this year to provide credit unions with quality products and better pricing,” Sepich said. “It’s the start of a special year for credit unions and all cooperatives.” ICU Day is also the launch of the International Year of Cooperatives (IYC). The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2012 as the IYC to highlight the contribution cooperatives make to socio-economic development. The World Council of Credit Unions has customized the theme for credit unions and added a graphic for ICU Day 2011. Credit unions in the U.S. have access to the full-color poster art--through the CUNA website--which builds on the ICU Day 2011 theme and logo. To access CUNA ICU Day resources, use the link.
