Time is Running Out to Nominate CUs and CU Leaders

CUNA Awards

MCUL & Affiliates and CUNA are working together to recognize the ways credit unions support their communities and members through the 2016 CUNA awards. These awards showcase all of the great accomplishments and hard work employees have invested into our cities and state.

Credit unions can submit entries for an Adult or Youth Desjardins Financial Education Award, a Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award or a Louise Herring Philosophy-in-Action Award. All awards are available in categories ranging from less than $50 million to more than $1 billion in assets.

CUNA awards submissions are open now through July 22. Enter your credit union today! Details and online submission information are available here.
