The awards ceremony celebrated three of the highest national honors in the credit union movement:
* Lifetime Achievement: Rudy Hanley, president/CEO, SchoolsFirst FCU, Santa Ana, Calif. Hanley has been described as a visionary, consensus builder, and a respected voice for all in the credit union industry. * Individual Achievement: Daniel A. "Dan" Mica, former president/CEO of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Mica helped preserve credit union access for millions of consumers, protect credit unions' federal tax exemption, raised credit union political involvement to the highest levels, and a host of additional achievements. * Outstanding organization: National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB). For 38 years, the NYIB and its volunteer network of credit union youth advocates have consistently led the charge to bring financial education and understanding of credit unions to America's young people.
"There is no honor greater than the one that comes from your peers," said Hanley. "It is especially humbling when it comes from those you admire and are far more deserving." More than 800 credit union leaders and supporters attended the event held during CUNA's Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) this week. "This year's winners will join an elite group of 45 individuals and 21 organizations whose extraordinary efforts over the past 23 years have earned the credit union movement's highest national honors," said emcee Bob Schumacher, CEO, MountainCrest CU, Arlington, Wash., and chair of NCUF's Awards and Recognition Committee. The awards are named for the late CUNA CEO Herb Wegner, whose innovative ideas and deeds revolutionized the ways that credit unions serve their communities. They carry on his spirit of "innovative, creative, risk-taking" leadership. To learn more about this year's award recipients, use the link.
