On October 20, 2016, SouthPoint Financial Credit Union will, along with more than 56,000 credit unions around the world, celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day), and the principles that make credit unions unique.
Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives guided by nine principles which include 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.
On ICU Day, SouthPoint 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.
The public is welcome to stop by any SouthPoint branch and celebrate with cookies and coffee to commemorate a movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people.
