Tuesday, March 26, 2013 8:55 AM

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 (NCUF). Winners will be honored at NCUF’s annual awards dinner on Feb. 24, 2014 in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington, D.C.

“NCUF’s Wegner Awards are widely considered the highest national honors in the credit union movement,” said Josie Collins, NCUF Director of Donor Relations and Resource Development. “We encourage credit union supporters to nominate their best and brightest whose achievements fulfill the Foundation’s mission to make financial freedom achievable through credit unions.”

Nominations need to be made by June 28, 2013 for the following awards:

  • The Individual Achievement Award honors an unsung hero for their innovative concepts and/or accomplishments that are ongoing and current contributions to the credit union community for their work within the past three to five years.  Accomplishments must have had a significant impact or a potential impact on the local and/or national and/or international credit union movement with measured results. Nominations must cite a specific subject of achievement such as financial literacy, service to the underserved, alternatives to predatory lending, and/or new products.
  • The Outstanding Organization/Program Award honors an organization, program or business for their innovative concepts and/or product/services that have had a significant impact on the local and/or national and/or international credit union movement with measured results.
  • The Lifetime Achievement Award honors an individual who has dedicated their life to promoting the credit union philosophy, created innovative concepts and provided leadership that has had a significant and lasting impact on the local and/or national and/or international credit union movement.
