On October 17, 2019, UARK FCU will join with 56,000 credit unions around the world in celebration of International Credit Union (ICU) Day. You’re invited to celebrate with us by stopping by your local branch 10 am – 2 pm that day for a cupcake.
There are 200+ million credit union members around the world – more than 100 million in the U.S. alone – and UARK FCU joins them in celebration of 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 have 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.
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 UARK FCU celebrates ICU Day. Because credit unions empower people, wherever they are in the world or in life, to take control of their financial future.
The public is welcome to stop by a branch and celebrate with us a movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people.
