The credit union movement is steeped in a rich history of collaboration across divides. For nearly two centuries, financial cooperatives all over the world have encouraged people of every race, gender and belief to come together and give their all towards the betterment of their communities. It’s about people helping people.
This year, on October 18, 2018, we will celebrate International Credit Union Day when cooperatives in dozens of nations look back at the history and success of the movement. This year marks the 70th anniversary of International Credit Union Day, the movement’s long-standing loyalty to its members and its mission of providing them with financial support and guidance.
Today, over 235 million people are served by credit unions in 109 countries and 6 continents.
Here at We Florida Financial we salute the movement and give thanks to all our members who have supported us and whose lives we have made better. Happy International Credit Union Day!
