The Louise Herring Philosophy-in-Action Member Service Award recognizes model credit union efforts to improve members’ lives through programs (other than personal finance education), such as special loan modification program, wealth-building or debt reduction incentive program.

The Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award recognizes model credit union efforts to teach personal finance concepts and skills to members and nonmembers under age 18.  Examples might include classroom presentation series, peer-to-peer financial counseling, special-savers or borrowers club.

The Desjardins Adult Financial Education Award recognizes model credit union efforts to teach personal finance concepts and skills to members and nonmembers age 18 and older. Examples might include presentation series to a SEG group or one-on-one financial counseling or credit report review.

Over the next 12 issues of the Leaguer, the League will highlight each of the programs that earned our credit unions a first place award.
