True Story: International Credit Union Day, by Doug True, CEO

ICU-Day-logo-(1).jpgInternational Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. The day is recognized to reflect upon the history of the credit union movement and promote its achievements. It is also a day to honor those who have dedicated their lives to the movement, to recognize the hard work of those in the credit union industry, and to show appreciation to our members.

Since International Credit Union Day will be celebrated next week, I’d like to reflect on FORUM’s commitment to serve our local community.  Credit unions across the globe are known for serving and being an important part of the fabric of these communities.  This is a key differentiator for credit unions across the country and for FORUM here in Central Indiana.  We value the trust that our more than 121,000 members have placed in FORUM.  As a local business we also like that our 330 employees live, work, and play here in the area in which FORUM serves.  These employees, in addition to our members, play a tremendous role in helping us be a positive contributor to Central Indiana’s economic efforts. 

We take pride in FORUM’s history, specifically the fact that we have operated for more than 74 years as a member-owned not-for-profit financial cooperative.   We like the “buy local” concept and feel, which is exactly what you are doing when you select us for your financial services.  Whether you are a depositor or borrower, your relationship with FORUM allows us to continue serving the community with our products, investments, services, and improved operations.  We don’t have shareholders because our members – you – are the owner.  Thank you for being a member and owner of FORUM Credit Union.  We appreciate your business and hope you’ll share how FORUM makes a difference for our members and the community.
