Final Week To Submit Your Credit Union’s Good Works for 2013 Awards

This is it! Your last chance to have your credit union’s accomplishments recognized in this year’s Dora Maxwell, Louise Herring, and Alphonse Desjardins Awards.  All entries must be received by the close of business on Friday, Aug. 2.

These awards help tell the credit union story to the public, to the media, and to lawmakers. With all the outstanding community and member service projects happening at Michigan credit unions, this will be another year of tough decisions for the judges, but they are up to the task. Don’t miss the chance to have your credit union in the running for these prestigious awards.

Credit unions of all asset sizes are eligible to submit entries for the different awards. Entries must be received by August 2 and should cover activities that took place between roughly June 2012 and June 2013. Credit unions may submit entries for more than one award.
