Nominations open for Lending in Excellence awards
MADISON, Wis. (6/10/08)--Nominations are being accepted for the ninth annual Excellence in Lending Awards, which recognize outstanding lending results and practices by credit unions. The deadline for submitting applications is Aug. 8. 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. Credit unions demonstrating an ability to meet their members’ needs through innovation are excellent award candidates, said the awards sponsors, CUNA Mutual Group and CUNA Lending Council. Credit unions may be nominated for the 2008 award in several categories:
* Consumer Lending Excellence Award: two categories--assets under $250 million and assets greater than $250 million; * Mortgage Lending Excellence Award: two categories--assets under $250 million and assets greater than $250 million; * Low/Modest Means Excellence Award: Any asset level; and * Business Lending Excellence Award: Any asset level.

Airfare, hotel and conference registration for one representative of each winning credit union is included with the award. CUNA Mutual and the CUNA Lending Council established the Excellence in Lending Awards in 2000.
