Posted by Credit Union 1 on Oct 19, 2017 4:00:00 AM

Happy International Credit Union Day, Alaska! It’s our favorite time of year again, when credit unions around the world celebrate our unique “people helping people” purpose.  This year’s ICU Day theme is “Dreams Thrive Here” – which is a pretty great differentiator that makes your local credit union a special place to be.
