The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) is making it easier for its member-credit unions to enter and submit their most creative and effective promotions to NAFCU’s 2012 Marketing Awards Program, which is now accepting entries.

The entire awards program is now online with a streamlined submission process. The online program affords participants the opportunity to submit entry forms and supporting materials at their convenience. They can also start, stop, save and come back to an entry.

In addition, the program offers two new categories: Best Promotional Event or Service and Best Innovative Product or Service. Additional categories include Best Lending Promotion; Best Membership Promotion; Best Product or Service Promotion; Best Member Newsletter; Best Annual Report; Best Promotional Campaign; and Best Website. Credit unions are limited to entries in two categories.

Entries will be divided into two groups—credit unions with asset sizes of less than $150 million or those with $150 million or more.

The competition is open to all natural person credit unions belonging to NAFCU. The entry deadline is Dec. 5. Entries may be submitted online at

Winning entries will be recognized and displayed at NAFCU’s 2012 Strategic Growth Conference, March 13-15, 2012, at the FireSky Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz, and during NAFCU’s 45th Annual Conference & Exhibition, July 24-28, 2012, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn.

NAFCU is the only national organization that focuses exclusively on federal issues affecting credit unions, representing its members before the federal government and the public.
