American 1 Credit Union Celebrates 75 Years of International Credit Union Day®

On October 19, 2023, American 1 Credit Union will join over 56,000 credit unions around the world to celebrate the 75th anniversary of International Credit Union (ICU) Day®.

International Credit Union Day highlights the many ways that credit unions across the world help members work towards achieving their financial goals. American 1 aligns with this vision by building financial wellness in the communities they serve through personal everyday banking since 1950.

"The difference that credit unions make all over the world is powerful," stated Martha Fuerstenau, President/CEO of American 1. "We see credit unions making extraordinary impacts every day, keeping their members' money where it matters to them, in their community. At American 1, we boldly support the initiatives of credit unions by putting our member's financial wellness at the forefront of every decision we make." 

Credit unions were built on the principle of "people helping people." We've seen that philosophy in action for more than 100 years, with credit unions providing access to affordable financial products and striving to meet the needs of underserved communities. American 1 is honored to be a part of this proud tradition. 

American 1 invites both members and nonmembers to visit any branch location to celebrate this day and help spread awareness about why you should choose a credit union as your financial partner. 

International Credit Union Day is brought to you by Credit Union National Association and World Council of Credit Unions. This year's event is proudly sponsored by Elan Credit Card.
