WOCCU seeks nominations for Distinguished Service Award
MADISON, Wis. (11/12/10)--The World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) is calling for nominations for the Distinguished Service Award (DSA), the highest honor bestowed by the international credit union system. Nomination forms for individuals and organizations are due no later than March 25. Award presentations for 2011 will be made at WOCCU's World Credit Union Conference, July 24–27 in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom.

The DSA honors the outstanding achievements of individuals and organizations within the global credit union movement whose activities have furthered WOCCU’s vision of “improving people's lives through credit unions.” WOCCU does not necessarily award the DSA every year but bestows the honor based on the viability and worthiness of candidates in the eyes of the awards committee. “We encourage the leaders of our member organizations to seek out candidates within their own credit union movements who have truly set themselves apart in regard to credit union service internationally,” said Dave Grace, WOCCU vice president of association services. “The Distinguished Service Award represents a rich history of service and dedication by those who have received the honor.” In the case of individuals, recipients may be WOCCU member organization officers, directors or representatives; international credit union pioneers; field technicians with a long and outstanding service record; or persons 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 no more than one institutional award each year. Nominations must be made by a WOCCU member organization and are due no later than March 25. For more information, use the link.
