All current and potential members (that is, all UST employees and their family members) are invited to celebrate International Credit Union Week with the St. Thomas Employee Federal Credit Union. The theme of the week for 2011 is “Credit Unions Build a Better World,” and the occasion will be celebrated by more than 184 million CU members worldwide in 97 countries.

On the  St. Paul campus, the CU office will offer refreshments and a $25 raffle, with the money deposited to the winner’s share account at the CU. No account? No problem – one will be opened for you. Stop by from noon to 3 p.m. today, Monday, Oct. 17, in the CU office, Room 209, Loras Hall.

On the Minneapolis campus, the CU staff will host a table from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19, in the second floor atrium of Terrence Murphy Hall. Refreshments will be available along with a raffle for a $25 deposit to a CU share account.

Membership packets, payroll authorization forms and loan applications will be available at both celebrations.
