SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 12, 2020) – Harland Clarke, a Vericast business and leading provider of customer experience solutions, is proud to once again support credit unions around the world as the sponsor of International Credit Union Day in collaboration with Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the World Council of Credit Unions. Celebrated this week on October 15th, the day pays tribute to the cooperative principles that are the foundation of the credit union philosophy while raising awareness about what it means to be a credit union member.
In its 72nd year, International Credit Union Day is a global opportunity to shine a light on the credit union movement through member and community outreach, volunteering, and fundraising efforts. This year’s theme, “Inspiring Hope for a Global Community,” calls attention to the critical role credit unions play in improving member’s financial well-being and quality of life, which has been even more important during this time of uncertainty.
“Throughout the pandemic, credit unions have continued to deliver high-value products and services for their members, as well as support their local communities, doing their part to make a positive social impact. We are honored to support the efforts of our nearly 3,000 credit union clients as they help their members navigate this challenging time,” said Rick Ebrey, General Manager, Harland Clarke and President of Operations & Client Management, Vericast. “International Credit Union Day provides the opportunity to recognize their service and the impact they have on turning members’ dreams into reality.”
“At a time when the role of credit unions is more crucial than ever, International Credit Union Day offers a global platform for 85,000 credit unions and their 274 million members across 118 countries to celebrate the credit union difference,” said Jim Nussle, President & CEO, Credit Union National Association. “We are grateful for Harland Clarke’s ongoing commitment to this special day and for standing by credit unions to help them deliver value to their members every day.”
The support provided by industry leaders Harland Clarke and CUNA provides participating credit unions with access to a number of resources, including International Credit Union Day-themed sample communications, design templates, staff talking points, web graphics, customizable promotional items, social media tool kits, apparel and creative ideas for how institutions can make the most of this event across their locations.
