Winners of Cornerstone's 2017 Chapter of the Year Awards
Friday, April 14, 2017 6:35 AM

At Cornerstone Credit Union League's 2017 Annual Meeting, three chapters were honored with Chapter of the Year awards while two chapters received Special Achievement Awards.

The Chapter of the Year awards recognizes Cornerstone chapters for their substantial contributions to the success of the credit union movement throughout the Cornerstone region. These awards are presented to those chapters earning the highest number of points within their designated grouping.

The winners are as follows:

  • Chapter of the Year award for Group 1, which includes chapters with up to 10 credit unions, is the Pineywoods Chapter.
  • Chapter of the Year award for Group 2, which encompasses chapters with 11 to 20 credit unions, is the Coastal Bend Chapter.
  • Chapter of the Year for Group 3, which comprises chapters with more than 21 credit unions, is the Houston Chapter of Credit Unions.

Additionally, all chapters were eligible to receive "special achievement" awards. Again this year, we're presenting special achievement awards for Political and Regulatory Advocacy and for Community Involvement and System Support.

  • The Special Achievement Award for Political and Regulatory Advocacy went to the El Paso Chapter of Credit Unions.
  • For Community Involvement and System Support, the Special Achievement Award goes to the San Angelo Chapter.

Cornerstone VP Political Affairs Gretchen Ziegler said, "I want to thank all the chapters that submitted their nominations for Chapter of the Year and to especially congratulate those who were recognized at the Annual Meeting. The tremendous political activity we saw in 2016 shows how much people are engaged and enthusiastic about being a part of advocacy at the chapter level. This can only benefit credit unions now and far into the future as we continue to strengthen relationships with our lawmakers."

Cornerstone Credit Union League is grateful to all of the chapters for their efforts to be politically engaged and standout supporters of the credit union movement.
