Butler, Lewis named winners of Georgia Credit Union League Awards
DULUTH, Ga. (3/26/14)--Georgia Credit Union Affiliates has named the winners of both its Lifetime Achievement and Eloise Woods Distinguished Service awards this week, the league's two highest honors.

The Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Warren Butler, who during his 29 years of experience with credit unions served on several boards and committees--including a decade on the league's board of directors. He also served as CEO for Georgia United CU, Duluth, Ga., with $957 million in assets, for 10 years.

Named after Moses C. Davis, a Georgia credit union pioneer, the award honors a credit union leader who has overcome the common barriers to success.

"Like Mr. Davis, Warren Butler devoted a meaningful part of his career to identifiable change and lasting improvements for cooperative financial institutions," the release announcing the awards said.

The Eloise Woods Distinguished Service Award went to U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.)--longtime friend of credit unions--who was one of the first legislators to support H.R. 1151, the 1998 law authorizing credit unions to have multiple common bonds among their memberships.

This year, Lewis also co-sponsored H.R. 688, the Credit Union Small Business Jobs Creation Act, which would provide credit unions with the authority to make additional member business loans.

The award is given to individuals who have worked to advance cooperative finance for the benefit of Georgia citizens.
