The NCUF to Award Credit Unions and Advocates with Herb Wegner Award
Thursday, October 9, 2014 6:30 AM

Herb Wegner Award

The Herb Wegner Memorial Awards take place once a year in conjunction with the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C. During this event, credit unions and their dedicated advocates are awarded with the Herb Wegner Award. In 2015, four Wegner awards will be going to three individuals and one organization. 

The Wegner awards are named after the late CUNA CEO Herb Wegner. Wegner's relentless commitment to the financial industry forever changed the way credit unions serve their members and communities. Those who are given the Wegner awards must represent his spirit of "innovative, creative, and risk-taking" leadership. 

Lifetime Achievement award recipients include Mike Mercer, president/CEO of Georgia Credit Union Affiliates, Bob Schumacher; retired president/CEO of Mountain Crest Credit Union; and Clarence Hall, chairman, board of directors, and president/CEO of Issaquena County FCU. The Iowa Credit Union League will be awarded as an Outstanding Organization. 

The Herb Wegner Memorial Awards will be presented at a special dinner hosted by the National Credit Union Foundation at the new Marriott Marquis on March 9, 2015, in Washington, D.C. Registration for dinner sponsorships and tickets will be available on the NCUF website within the next month.
