For the Antigo Times
On Thursday, October 20, CoVantage Credit Union will, along with more than 56,000 credit unions around the world, celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day), and the foundational principles that make credit unions unique.
Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives guided by nine principles, including democratic control, social responsibility, and returning all profits to members. This year’s theme is “The Authentic Difference,” a description of credit union’s cooperative structure and principles. CoVantage Credit Union celebrates International Credit Union Day because it believes banking should be principled.
On October 20, CoVantage joins the more than 217 million credit union members around the world in celebrating the people-first principles that have helped lift people out of poverty and strengthen communities all over the globe.
Please join the staff of CoVantage Credit Union as they celebrate the movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people. Refreshments will be served in our Antigo, Wausau, Weston, Rib Mountain, Rothschild, Stevens Point, Crandon, Shawano, Rhinelander, Iron River and Crystal Falls offices on Thursday, October 20.
