CU System
WOCCU distinguished service nominations due soon
MADISON, Wis. (3/2/10)--The nomination deadline for World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) Distinguished Service Award (DSA), the highest honor bestowed by the international credit union system, is April 5. Each year, the award honors the outstanding contributions of individuals or organizations to the global credit union movement. WOCCU’s vision is “Improving people’s lives through credit unions,” and the DSA recognizes the most distinguished achievements in support of that pursuit. WOCCU does not present the DSA honor every year; its presentation is governed by the viability and worthiness of candidates in the eyes of the judges. WOCCU presents no more than three individual awards and one institutional award in a single year. Award presentations this year will be made at The 1 Credit Union Conference, a joint enterprise of both WOCCU and the Credit Union National Association. The one-time conference, July 11-14 in Las Vegas, is expected to attract attendees from more than 60 countries. In the case of individuals, DSA nominees 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. 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. In 2009, WOCCU bestowed the DSA to David Chatfield, former president/CEO of the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues, and Wayne Nygren, former president/CEO of Credit Union Central of British Columbia, now Central 1 CU, Canada. In 2008, honors went to Chris Baker and Karen Schwartz, both economic development pioneers, from the U.S. and Credit Union Foundation Australia, respectively. DSA nominations must be made by a WOCCU member organization. For more information, use the link or contact Liliana Tangwall at ltangwall@woccu.org or 608-395-2043.
