National Maxwell Herring award winners selected
MADISON, Wis. (11/20/07)--The Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) awards committee has announced this year’s winners of the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility and Louise Herring Philosophy in Action Awards. Dora Maxwell first place winners include:
* Great Horizons FCU, Hammond, Ind.; * GraCo FCU, Alma, Mich.; * Soo Line CU, Minneapolis; * Maine Family FCU, Lewiston, Maine; * Avanta FCU, Billings, Mont.; * Denver Community CU, Denver; * CommunityAmerica CU, Lenexa, Kan.; and * Austin Chapter of Credit Unions in Texas.
First place Louise Herring award winners include:
* Kentucky Employees CU, Frankfort, Ky.; * Elga CU, Burton, Mich.; and * US FCU, Burnsville, Minn.
Maxwell, an organizer for the credit union movement’s trade association and original signer of CUNA’s constitution, worked to organize hundreds of credit unions in the U.S., developed volunteer organizer clubs and worked with organizations to help the poor. The Maxwell award is presented to credit unions in seven asset-size categories and a chapter category for outstanding social responsibility. Herring, a supporter of credit unions, signed the original constitution for a national credit union association when she was the Ohio delegate to the 1934 national credit union conference in Estes Park, Colo. Herring saw credit unions as more than just financial institutions and believed they should work to better people’s lives. The Herring award is given to a credit union demonstrating the internal application of the credit union philosophy to help improve financial matters and increase financial education for its members. “Credit unions hold firm to their belief in social responsibility and the people-first philosophy they were founded on,” said Dan Mica, president/CEO of CUNA. “The Maxwell and Herring awards program is a chance to honor credit unions that have created and implemented innovative community involvement and financial education programs, as well as an opportunity to share these ideas with the entire credit union movement.” Winning entries will be displayed at CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC), March 2-6 in Washington, D.C.
