Thursday, October 21, will mark the 73rd annual International Credit Union Day. Every year, this day serves to shine a light on why hundreds of millions of people all over the world choose credit unions. The theme this year is ‘Building financial health for a brighter tomorrow’.
Reflecting on the last year, gmcu CEO Melissa Ralph commented, “It’s never been more important for us to be here to serve our members and community,” she said.
“The impact of responses to the COVID pandemic throughout the year has presented challenges not only for individual and businesses in our communities, but also for the clubs, groups and community activities that make our region such a vibrant place to live.
“Being member-owned, the wellbeing of our members and the communities we belong to is at the centre of our decision making.
“gmcu has been proud to be able to continue to support our local sporting, community and arts groups throughout this time, and it has been heartening to see how many of these have found innovative ways to continue to achieve community connection – still making it happen using event reschedules, virtual events and new formats.”
Credit unions are owned by their members, feature a full range of banking products and offer personalised service. Speak to your local gmcu team today to find out more about how becoming a credit union member can benefit you.
