Madison, WI (September 11, 2012) – The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has received a record number of entries for the 2012 Community Credit Union of the Year Award. The awards committee, comprised of a panel of judges from the CUNA Community Credit Union Committee, recently completed review of the entries and remarked on the quality of submissions. “It is inspiring and energizing to see so many credit unions doing great things in their community,” commented Todd Spiczenski, Vice President, CUNA Center for Professional Development. “It was difficult to choose from so many outstanding credit unions that embody the principles of the credit union movement.”
This award honors credit unions that consistently excel in the advancement of the ideals of the credit union movement, are proactive in their community and provide a wide array of services that meet the needs of their diverse communities. Four outstanding credit unions receive this prestigious award each year, with a first place and honorable mention winner in each asset category of less than $250 million and more than $250 million.
Awards will be presented at CUNA Community Credit Union October 23-26, 2012, in Denver, Colorado. Along with being recognized at the conference, winners will receive a profile in Credit Union Magazine and the opportunity to co-present a Best Practices session at the 2013 conference.
