Few Weeks Remain for 2016 Wegner Award Nominations
Thursday, July 9, 2015 6:25 AM

NCUF Wegner Award

With a deadline of July 31, 2015, credit union supporters are encouraged to nominate individuals and organizations for the Herb Wegner Memorial Awards to be presented by the National Credit Union Foundation. Winners will be honored at the Foundation’s annual awards dinner on February 22, 2016, in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, DC.

The awards are named in honor of the late Credit Union National Association CEO Herb Wegner, whose tireless dedication, innovative ideas, and deeds truly revolutionized the ways that credit unions serve their communities. The awards that bear Wegner’s name recognize his spirit of “innovative, creative, risk-taking” leadership. View past award recipients here.

Nominations will be accepted for the following awards:

  • The Outstanding Individual Achievement Award honors an individual who is dedicated to promoting the credit union philosophy, has created innovative concepts, and provided leadership that has had a significant and lasting impact on the local, regional, national and/or international credit union movement with measured results. Recognition for individuals posthumously or for retired individuals must occur within five years of death or retirement.
      
  • The Outstanding Organization/Program Award honors an organization, program or business for their innovative concepts, products, and services that have had a significant impact on the local and/or national and/or international credit union movement with measured results.

There has been a notable change this year to the name of the awards, as the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Individual Achievement Award have been consolidated into one award, entitled the Outstanding Individual Achievement Award.  Multiple awardees may be selected from each category.

Nominations can come from individuals and/or organizations. The following are the three steps needed to make a nomination:

  1. Complete the Wegner Awards nomination form on the Foundation website (ncuf.coop).
  2. Gather at least five letters of recommendation citing examples of the nominee’s achievements relevant to the award criteria.
  3. Send the nomination form and recommendation letters electronically to the Foundation by July 31, 2015.

Questions about the Wegner Awards can be directed to Danielle Brown at dbrown@ncuf.coop or 608-556-2406.
