Reminder: Bring s Box of Cartoon Band-aids to Convention as Part of LCUL's Community Service Project
We want to remind credit unions about the community service project taking place at convention this week. From superheroes to princesses, if you've been around kids between the ages of 1 and 10, you know they are serious about their band aid selection. That's why we're holding our third annual band aid donation drive.

Children's Hospital uses thousands upon thousands of band aids each year so we encourage you to donate a few boxes at the CULAC booth during our convention. Giving back is what we do and there's no better time than our statewide convention when we all come together.
2019 International CU Day Theme Announced

The World Council of Credit Unions and CUNA have announced this year's International Credit Union Day theme: "Local Service. Global Reach." According to WOCCU, the theme is intended to capture the "focus and scope" of credit unions and further explain their mission on how each credit union serves a local community globally.

This year's ICU Day will be held Thursday, Oct. 17. The ultimate goal of the celebration is to raise awareness about the tremendous work credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged. During ICU Day, credit unions around the world host fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteer initiatives, parades and more.
