“The judges had a very difficult job, reviewing the initial application video and subsequent blog post, and determining which Finalists they felt should move forward in the competition,” said Fred Johnson, CUES’ President/CEO. “These five Finalists were selected from a very highly qualified group. The judging was not easy; we applaud all of the applicants for their hard work to promote their projects, and of course for the great work they are doing at their credit unions. Now, we congratulate the Finalists, and look forward to learning about their projects’ progress between now and the final presentations at CEO/Executive Team Network in November.”

In addition to two coaching sessions provided by DDJ Myers, the five Finalists each receive registration, accommodation and airfare to CUES’ CEO/Executive Team Network ( ) in Manalapan, Fla., November 4–7, 2012.
