On October 19, 2017, Riverview will, along with more than 56,000 credit unions around the world, celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day), and the philosophy and achievements of the credit union movement.
The theme for International Credit Union Day 2017 is “Dreams Thrive Here” and it’s meant to serve as a reminder of how effective credit unions like Riverview are at helping all people chase and achieve their biggest dreams in life.
This is because, unlike other financial institutions, credit unions are not-for-profit, so their primary purpose isn’t to score record profits in order to cut distant shareholders bigger dividends checks. Rather, the primary purpose of credit unions is – and always has been – to be of service to their members. That means you.
This people-first philosophy doesn’t just mean better service, it translates into a better financial deal for consumers. Credit unions, on average, offer higher rates of return on savings accounts, lower rates on loans, and fewer and lower fees than other financial institutions.
On ICU Day, Riverview invites its members and the public to stop by either office to learn more about RCU and the credit union movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people. We also will provide a FREE lunch, along with great giveaways, cash drawings, and live radio remote. Food is scheduled to be served beginning at 11:30 a.m. and until it lasts.
