International Credit Union Day, Oct. 20, celebrates the common roots of 186 million credit union members in 97 countries. The credit union movement has come a long way since the first financial cooperative was established in Germany 163 years ago. As we observe past achievements and look forward to the accomplishment to come, the members of the RACCU invite you to join in celebrating International Credit Union Week, Oct. 17-25.
