PFCU celebrates International Credit Union Day® 2022!
People First Credit Union will be joining credit union members around the world to celebrate International Credit Union Day® (ICU Day) on the 20th October 2022.
This year marks the 74th anniversary of ICU day where credit unions around the world reflect on the movement's history, promote its achievements, recognise its hard work and share member experiences.
The theme for this year’s ICU day is "Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union™" which aims to encourage and inspire people to plan for their future. Credit unions such as People First Credit Union, are there for their members to assist them to build and maintain a brighter financial future for themselves and their families.
Credit unions are not-for-profit financial co-operatives owned by, and operated for, the benefit of members they serve. Strong credit unions make strong communities. Credit unions genuinely care about their members, and put them at the heart of everything they do. As Bank branches continue to close in cities, towns and villages, credit unions are committed to maintaining their services within their local communities, and offering that personal, face-to-face service.
Sean Dunne, CEO at People First Credit Union said: “Our members and community are our backbone and we are so proud here at People First Credit Union of the part we play in sustaining that community. We genuinely care about our members, and put them at the heart of everything we do. Our goal is to remain a cornerstone of our community by continuing to go above and beyond for our members. With the cost of living crisis becoming more and more prevalent, credit unions remain vital and accessible providers of affordable and ethical financial services across the country. Our doors here at People First Credit Union are always open.
We believe that People First Credit Union makes a real, positive impact on the lives of people in the Laois and Kildare area and we want to remind people that we are open to help with their personal financial needs. We have recently launched mortgages and our new MYCU Current Account to expand on our vast offering to our members. We look forward to celebrating with our members, and indeed the whole community, on ICU Day®.”
