Wegner Awards Dinner reservations open online
WASHINGTON (12/11/07)--Credit union leaders and supporters can reserve seats online for the 20th Annual Herb Wegner Memorial Awards Dinner presented by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) on March 3. The event will be held during the Credit Union National Association’s 2008 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). Credit unions can make reservations through a new secure page on the NCUF website. Registrants can choose to download a printable form, complete it off-line, and fax or mail the completed form to NCUF. The 2008 Wegner Awards Dinner will take place at a new location: the Grand Hyatt Hotel, two blocks from the Washington Convention Center where the GAC will be held for the first time. Individual tickets for the three-course dinner are $200 each; tables of 10 are $1,900. A portion of each ticket is tax-deductible. The awards ceremony will celebrate three of the highest national honors in the credit union movement:
* Lifetime Achievement Award: Dr. Bob Hoel, retired executive director, Filene Research Institute, Madison, Wis., for decades of research that has benefited credit unions and consumers; * Individual Achievement Award: Harriet May, president/CEO, GECU, El Paso, Texas, for changing lives of hundreds of families in America’s poorest city by providing financial education, homeownership counseling and foreclosure prevention; * Outstanding Organization Award: State Employees Credit Union Foundation, Raleigh, N.C., for leveraging credit union members’ contributions to support education, health care, housing and human services throughout the state.
