Get Ready: CUNA Awards Nominations Opening April 28, 2021

The CUNA awards programs showcase the credit unions and chapters that are leading the way to improve the good works that have been a hallmark of the credit union movement for more than 100 years.

We all know each and every credit union and chapter does something for the greater good, whether it’s for members, the community, or employees. Why not showcase what you do by submitting an entry for one of these awards? Those entries that win at the league level, are submitted for the national competition.

What are the CUNA Awards?

Dora Maxwell – Recognizes extraordinary acts of community outreach.

Louise Herring – Recognizes commitment to exceptional member service.

*Desjardins Youth – Recognizes leadership in financial education geared towards youth.

*Desjardins Adult – Recognizes leadership in financial education geared towards adults.

Online submission process: In an effort to streamline the submission process for our member credit unions and to reduce financial and human resources spent on the submission process, CUNA and the Leagues have collaborated to produce one standardized format and online submission process. There is a submission web portal for Alabama credit unions, Florida credit unions and Georgia credit unions. To submit, you will be asked for your CUNA website access username and password. If you do not already have one, you will automatically establish an account when you create an application to submit.

The deadline for entry submission is June 25.  Questions? Contact LSCU Director of Communications Ann Naiman.

*Please note, if your credit union has an adult and youth financial education program, submissions must be made to both, adult and youth.
