ANSAC Credit Union celebrates International Credit Union Day® 2023
ANSAC Credit Union celebrates International Credit Union Day® 2023.
ANSAC Credit Union will be joining credit union members around the world to celebrate International Credit Union Day® (ICU Day) on Thursday 19th October 2023. This year marks the 75th 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.
This year, to support the ICU theme of “Celebrating the spirit of the global credit union movement”, credit unions across Ireland will be showcasing how they are “For You, For Community”. Credit unions such as ANSAC Credit Union, are there for their members and communities to assist them to build and maintain a brighter financial future for themselves and their families.
Credit unions are unique in the financial sector as 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. At a time when 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 as well as access to digital channels.
Rosie Casey, Member Services and Lending Manager at ANSAC Credit Union said: “Our members and community are our backbone, and we are so proud here at ANSAC 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 ANSAC Credit Union are always open.
We believe that ANSAC Credit Union makes a real, positive impact on the lives of people in the Defence Force Community, and we want to remind people that we are here to help with their personal financial needs. We look forward to celebrating with our members, and indeed the whole community, on ICU Day®.”
ANSAC Credit Union has been proudly serving the Defence Force Community for nearly 30 years. ANSAC Credit Union has a membership of over 6900, and in the past year alone has provided €12,213,814 in loans to the local community.
