PR – On October 20, 2022, credit unions in Grenada will join with credit unions worldwide to celebrate the 74th anniversary of International Credit Union (ICU) Day. This year’s theme is “Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union”.
After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19 regulations, in-person International Credit Union Day celebrations have returned. Celebrations will be held at the Grenada National Stadium Car Park, St. George’s, with a march-past which begins at 2:00pm from Ariza Credit Union’s Car Park. There will be live entertainment from top local artistes and a steel orchestra, along with food, drinks and other attractions.
Celebrations on the sister-isle, Carriacou, are scheduled to take place at the Hillsborough Tennis Court on October 27, 2022, with a march-past from the Hillsborough Community Centre at 3:00pm.
Several businesses have partnered with the GrenadaCreditUnions brand to offer discounts/specials to credit unions members throughout the month of October. Members can also win fantastic prizes during the GrenadaCreditUnions Trivia Fridays on the Grenada Co-operative League Ltd Facebook page.
International Credit Union (ICU) Day celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognize hard work and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948.
The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged.
