A Day in the Life of Credit Unions
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-On Jan. 17, 1917, the Credit Union League of Massachusetts helped create the first Credit Union Day, with the date selected because it was the birthday of the Father of Thrift, Benjamin Franklin. In 1948, CUNA and CUNA Mutual helped take the concept national, choosing the third Thursday of October as Credit Union Day. By the 1960s, the concept had become International CU Week.
In this issue, Credit Union Journal again celebrates the occasion with our 13th annual Day in the LIfe of Credit Unions, in which credit unions from around the U.S. and the world shoot photos of events at their CUs, all on the same day. This issue includes a special look at a Day in the Life of a CU in Haiti, working hard to help its members recover from the devastating earchquake in January.
