Excellence In Lending Award Entries Deadline Is Aug. 30
MADISON, Wis. (6/3/13)--Entries are being accepted for the 14th annual Excellence in Lending Awards until Aug. 30.

The Excellence in Lending Awards recognize outstanding lending results and practices by credit unions. The CUNA Lending Council and CUNA Mutual Group established the Excellence in Lending Awards in 2000.

The awards identify and share examples of lending excellence within the credit union movement by recognizing individual credit unions for their ability to serve members while sustaining sound financial performance.

"Being recognized with an Excellence in Lending Award validates all the effort a credit union puts into its lending program," said Bill Vogeney, Lending Council chair and executive vice president/chief lending officer at Ent FCU, Colorado Springs, Colo. "In addition to sharing your success with peers, it's a great endorsement of the value you bring members in the communities you serve."

Credit unions may be nominated for the 2013 award in the following categories:

  • Consumer Lending Excellence (Assets less than and more than $250 million);
  • Mortgage Lending Excellence (Assets less than and more than $250 million);
  • Low/Modest Means Excellence (Any asset level); and
  • Business Lending Excellence (Any asset level).
The Excellence in Lending Awards will be presented at the CUNA Lending Council's 19th Annual Conference, Nov. 3-6, in Phoenix, Ariz. Airfare, hotel and conference registration for one representative of each winning credit union is included with the award.

The CUNA Lending Council is a community of credit union lending professionals dedicated to being the primary source of best lending practices and educational opportunities for the credit union industry.
