President Barack Obama sent greetings Thursday to those celebrating International Credit Union Day. CUNA worked closely with the White House on the statement, and a number of credit union-friendly legislators also weighed in with the White House.
Credit unions and how they help people were the topic of the day not only in the United States but around the world Thursday. International Credit Union Day special events were held, for example, in Brussels; Canada; London, and St. Kitts.
As credit unions worldwide celebrate International Credit Union Day, CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle offered greetings from Cuba, where he is part of a contingent of credit union leaders working to bring cooperative financial services to the island nation.
