Today is registration deadline for Wegner Awards Dinner
WASHINGTON (2/8/08)--Today is the deadline to reserve seats for the 20th Annual Herb Wegner Memorial Awards Dinner to be presented by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) on March 3. The event will be held during the Credit Union National Association's 2008 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington, D.C. Credit unions can make online reservations today through a secure page on the NCUF website. Or they can download a printable form, complete it off-line, and fax or mail the completed form to NCUF today. The 2008 Wegner Awards Dinner will take place at a new location: the Grand Hyatt Hotel, two blocks from the Washington Convention Center where the GAC will be held for the first time. Individual tickets for the three-course dinner are $200 each; tables of 10 are $1,900. Up to $30 per ticket is tax-deductible. The awards ceremony will celebrate three of the highest national honors in the credit union movement:
* Lifetime Achievement Award: Dr. Bob Hoel, retired executive director, Filene Research Institute, Madison, Wis., for decades of research about credit unions and consumers; * Individual Achievement Award: Harriet May, president/CEO, GECU, El Paso, Texas, for changing lives of hundreds of families in America’s poorest city by providing financial education, homeownership counseling and foreclosure prevention; * Outstanding Organization Award: State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Foundation, Raleigh, N.C., for leveraging credit union members’ contributions to support education, energy, health care, housing, and human services throughout the state.
