On October 17, 2019, PCCU will join with 56,000 credit unions around the world in celebration of International Credit Union (ICU) Day 19®.
There are 200+ million credit union members around the world and PCCU joins them in celebration of the not-for-profit cooperative spirit that all credit unions share.
This cooperative spirit has led to life-changing opportunities for people all over the world who’ve wanted to move into homes, get married, buy a car, take a family holiday or develop their business but were denied access to other financial institutions. In many parts of the world, people’s first taste of democracy is through their credit union, where “one member, one vote” is the governing structure.
At its most basic level, a credit union is people pooling their money to provide each other with affordable loans—it is literally people helping people. This is why PCCU celebrates ICU Day. Because credit unions empower people, wherever they are in the world or life, to take control of their financial future.
The local communities are welcome to stop by any of our three branches in Nelson, Colne and Burnley to find out our credit union, the ethical savings and affordable loans services that we provide. Join us as we celebrate a movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people.
