Education CU Council new tradition Fin lit awards
SPANISH FORT, Ala. (11/10/09)--The Education Credit Union Council (ECUC) will announce two awards at its 37th annual conference in February that will highlight credit unions’ dedication to the financial well-being of their members. The awards are: the Lifetime Achiever Award, which recognizes a credit union that has a long-term strategy of incorporating financial education into its brand, marketing, internal employee training and credit union sponsored events; and the Foolproof Partnership Award, which recognizes an ECUC credit union that is partnered with Foolproof to provide youth with financial education through a school or community group. “These awards will give credit unions the chance to be recognized by other credit unions who believe in the real mission of any credit union--helping their member-owners,” said Lorraine Zerfas, ECUC executive director. Foolproof is a financial literacy tool for consumers of all ages that is affiliated with the Colorado and Wyoming Credit Union Associations. The awards will be announced during the conference Feb. 13-16 in Orlando, Fla. ECUC provides education and networking opportunities to credit unions who serve educational communities.
