HR Professional of the Year Award

The purpose of the Cornerstone Credit Union League’s HR Professional of the Year award is to recognize an outstanding HR professional’s achievements and contributions to the advancement of HR in our movement.

The award was created by Cornerstone’s HR Council in 2014, and will be presented at Cornerstone’s HR Conference August 7-9 in Fort Worth.


The HR Professional of the Year nominee must be from a Cornerstone-affiliated credit union and a paid credit union employee. The individual selected will have made an outstanding contribution to "serving the HR profession" or "advancing the HR profession" within the credit union movement.

Specifically, Cornerstone will look for contributions the nominee has made that demonstrate:

  • Striving for the highest standards of professional performance in HR
  • Endeavoring to improve HR professional standards and ethical conduct
  • Developing a greater appreciation for the HR function
  • Promoting HR professional knowledge
