NCUF opens Wegner Award nominations
MADISON, Wis. (4/13/11)--Nominations are due June 17 for the 24th Annual Herb Wegner Memorial Awards, to be presented by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF). The awards are named in honor of late Credit Union National Association (CUNA) CEO Herb Wegner, whose innovative ideas and deeds revolutionized the ways credit unions serve their communities. The awards carry on Wegner’s spirit of “innovative, creative, risk-taking” leadership, said NCUF. Winners will be honored at the awards dinner on March 19, 2012 in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C. “The Wegner Awards are widely considered the highest national honors in the credit union movement,” said Bucky Sebastian, NCUF executive director. “Therefore, we encourage credit union supporters from every state to nominate their best and brightest for the awards.” The following award categories are open for nomination:
* The Individual Achievement Award honors an unsung hero for innovative concepts and accomplishments that have made a significant impact on the national and/or international credit union movements within the past 10 years--or have a significant potential impact now. Nominations must cite a specific subject of achievement. Examples include financial literacy, service to the underserved, alternatives to predatory lending, and/or new products. * The Outstanding Organization/Program Award honors an organization or program for innovative concepts, products or services that have made an impact with measured results on the national and/or international credit union movements. * The Lifetime Achievement Award honors an individual who has dedicated his or her life to promoting the credit union philosophy of “people helping people.” This person must have created innovative concepts and provided leadership that has made a significant and lasting impact on the national and/or international credit union movements.
