NCB Honors CUNAs Hampel with 2011 Spirit of Cooperation Award
WASHINGTON (5/12/11)--NCB, a financial services company serving cooperatives, has named Bill Hampel, senior vice president and chief economist for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), as this year’s recipient of the Stan Dreyer Spirit of Cooperation Award. The honor was presented at the bank’s annual meeting held May 5 in Washington, D.C. The bank awards The Stan Dreyer Spirit of Cooperation Award annually, selecting a recipient--an individual or organization--who lives the spirit of the cooperative principles. Dryer, the award's namesake and who is now retired from NCB, was one of the people instrumental in passage of the 1978 Congressional Bank Act, which created NCB. Charles Snyder, president/CEO of NCB, said about Hampel's award: “Bill has been instrumental in forging a great partnership between the bank and credit unions nationwide. His contributions to the bank and the cooperative community for decades are countless, and we are extremely pleased to honor him and his accomplishments.” Hampel’s dedication to working with credit unions and cooperatives made him a natural recipient for the award, NCB said in a release. As an NCB board director for more than seven years, he has taken his credit union knowledge and successfully applied it to other cooperative sectors. Hampel has helped NCB work with credit unions nationwide with deposits, cash management, lending and loan sales, NCB noted. Hampel also is a senior member of CUNA’s credit union advocacy team in Washington D.C. He writes economic analysis columns that appear in several credit union publications, and is an expert on the economy and credit union issues. He is regularly interviewed by the media for stories appearing on major national television, radio and print outlets.
