The awards will be presented at this year's World Credit Union Conference, July 15-18 in Gdańsk, Poland.
Nominations are due March 30.
"Credit unions worldwide are able to excel thanks to the committed efforts of people and organizations who believe in their mission," said Brian Branch, WOCCU president/CEO. "Help us honor those who have given outstanding service by recognizing them with this prestigious award."
The DSA honors the exceptional achievements of individuals and organizations whose activities have furthered WOCCU's vision of "improving people's lives through credit unions."
The DSA is not an annual award, rather WOCCU bestows the special honor based on the proven achievements and worthiness of candidates in the eyes of the awards committee.
Individual recipients may be WOCCU member organization officers, directors or representatives; international credit union pioneers; field technicians with a long and outstanding service record; or individuals whose actions have benefitted global credit union development. WOCCU presents up to three individual awards in a single year.
Institutional recipients may be organizations or agencies that have provided financial or technical assistance to develop international credit union movements and their service infrastructures over an extended period of time. WOCCU presents only one institutional award each year.
