To celebrate International Credit Union (ICU) Day 2022 which took place on Thursday 20th October, the Irish League of Credit Unions hosted an event at 1 Windmill Lane, Dublin 2 where attendees heard from a great line up of speakers including Minister of State with responsibility for Financial Services, Credit Unions and Insurance at the Department of Finance Sean Fleming, ILCU President Helene McManus, ILCU CEO David Malone, PAX Financial CEO Paul Merriman, CEO of Black Raven Credit Union Ltd Susan Lynch, and economist Austin Hughes.
The theme for this year's ICU Day was "Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union" and each speaker addressed this theme in their own unique way setting out the importance of credit unions for Irish consumers particularly during the current cost of living crisis.

At the event, ILCU CEO David Malone formally launched the Credit Union Consumer Sentiment Index (formerly known as the KBC Consumer Sentiment Index). The ILCU has partnered with Core Research and economist Austin Hughes to take over this important barometer for understanding Irish consumer behaviour. David spoke about the great fit between the Index and the financial education role of credit unions.
