Winners will be honored at the Foundation’s annual awards dinner on February 27, 2017, in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, DC.

“If you look at the list of past Wegner Awardees, you’ll see they are all truly a model of tireless dedication to the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people,’” said Danielle Brown, director of donor relations and development. “The Foundation’s Wegner Awards are widely considered the highest national honors in the credit union movement, and we encourage you to nominate those individuals and programs that exemplify putting ‘belief into action.’”

Nominations need to be made by Friday, July 29, 2016, 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.
  • 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.
