WOCCU calls for distinguished service award nominees
MADISON, Wis. (12/19/08)--The World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) has issued a call for nominations for the Distinguished Service Award (DSA), the highest honor bestowed by the international credit union system. Nomination forms are due March 2. DSA recognizes the global credit union movement's most distinguished achievements. The award is given to individuals and organizations that have offered exemplary service to the credit union movement and its practices. The DSA honor is not given every year; its presentation is governed by the viability and worthiness of candidates by award judges. All presentations are made at WOCCU's World Credit Union Conference, this year scheduled for July 26-29 in Barcelona, Spain. “I encourage global credit union leaders to search within their own credit union communities to see if they have candidates who have distinguished themselves while serving the needs of others,” said Ron Hance, chairman of WOCCU's awards committee, a member of its board of directors and president/CEO of Heritage Family CU in Rutland, Vt. “DSA offers a wonderful opportunity to showcase one's past credit union achievements among his or her peers,” he added. Recipients may be WOCCU and member organization officers, directors or representatives; international credit union pioneers; field technicians with a long and outstanding service record; or persons whose actions have benefited global credit union development. No more than three individual awards may be presented in a single year. Institutional recipients may be organizations or agencies that have provided financial and technical assistance to develop international credit union movements and their service infrastructures over an extended period of time. No more than one institutional award may be granted each year.
