MCUL & Affiliates has revealed the credit unions that received political action committee fundraising honors for their efforts in 2015. The awards will be presented at MCUL’s upcoming state GAC, April 20.
The Chairman's Award is given to credit unions in three asset categories that raised the highest percentage of their PAC fundraising goal. Separate awards are given for State and Federal PAC fundraising.
Chairman's Award winners for the State PAC were Four Flags Area CU (less than $20 million category) with 1,227 percent of its goal; Muskegon Co-Op FCU ($20-100 million category) with 572 percent of its goal; HPC CU (more than $100-250 million category) with 452 percent of its goal; and Frankenmuth CU (more than $250 million category) with 727 percent of its goal.

The Trustee's Award goes to the credit union chapter that raised the highest percentage of their PAC fundraising goal, again with separate awards for State and Federal PAC fundraising. The Blue Ox Chapter took both awards, raising 244 percent of their State PAC goal with $11,796.00 and 291 percent of their Federal PAC goal with $28,135.81.
The President's Award is given to the credit union that raised the most money overall, with a separate award for the State and Federal PACs.
