Wegner Awards Dinner has about 100 seats left
WASHINGTON (2/11/09)--More than 1,000 credit union leaders and supporters have registered for the 21st Annual Herb Wegner Memorial Awards Dinner presented by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) on Feb. 23. About 100 seats are still available. Seats can be reserved online through a secure page on the NCUF website. (Use the resource link.) Registrants also can download a printable form, complete it off-line, and fax or mail it to NCUF. “We truly appreciate the enthusiasm we’re seeing from credit union supporters who understand how important it is--even in the worst economic times--to share and celebrate the best practices and the best people that credit unions have to offer,” said NCUF Executive Director Steve Delfin. The dinner will take place at the Grand Hyatt Washington, two blocks from the Washington Convention Center, site of the Credit Union National Association’s 2009 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). Delfin said NCUF hopes to sell out the main ballroom with 1,100 people. The awards ceremony will showcase four of the credit union movement’s highest national honors:
* Lifetime Achievement Award: Bill Sterner, late president/CEO of Elevations Credit Union in Boulder, Colo. * Individual Achievement Award: Rita Haynes, treasurer, manager and CEO of Faith Community United Credit Union in Cleveland, Ohio. * Individual Achievement Award: Tom Sargent, president/CEO of First Tech Credit Union in Beaverton, Ore. * Outstanding Organization Award: Montana Credit Unions for Community Development in Billings, Mont.
Registration is also still available for the GAC. Use the resource link.
