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 Enterprise Risk Management Conference August 7-9 in San Antonio.

  • 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
