Deadline for Wegner Award nominations is June 19
MADISON, Wis. (4/6/09)--The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) is encouraging credit union supporters to nominate individuals and organizations for the 22nd Annual Wegner Awards. “With all the negative news swirling around the financial industry, it is more important now than ever to showcase the positive impact credit unions make on consumers,” said NCUF Executive Director Steve Delfin. “We encourage credit union supporters from every state to nominate their best and brightest for the national Wegner Awards.” Nominations are due by June 19 for these awards:
* The Individual Achievement Award, which honors an unsung hero for innovative concepts and/or accomplishments that have made a significant impact on the national and/or international credit union movements within the past 10 years--or have a significant potential impact now. Nominations must cite a specific subject of achievement. Examples include financial literacy, service to the underserved, alternatives to predatory lending, and/or new products. * The Outstanding Organization/Program Award, which honors an organization or program for innovative concepts and/or products/services that have made a significant impact with measured results on the national and/or international credit union movements. * The Lifetime Achievement Award, which honors an individual who has dedicated his/her life to promoting the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People.” This person must have created innovative concepts and provided leadership that has made a significant and lasting impact on the national and/or international credit union movements.
Nominations can come from individuals and/or organizations. To make a nomination, take four steps:
* Print out the Wegner Awards nomination form on the NCUF website at www.ncuf.coop; * Fill out the nomination form; * Gather at least five letters of recommendation citing examples of the nominee’s achievements relevant to the award criteria: and * Send the nomination form and recommendation letters to NCUF by June 19.
