CU System
Deadline for Wegner dinner extended through Friday
WASHINGTON (1/27/09)--Credit union leaders and supporters have until Friday to register for the 21st Annual Herb Wegner Memorial Awards Dinner, presented by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) Feb. 23 during the Credit Union National Association’s 2009 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). The ceremony will present four of the credit union movement’s highest national honors:
* Lifetime Achievement Award: Bill Sterner, late president/CEO, Elevations CU, Boulder, Colo. Sterner traveled internationally to help credit unions learn to serve the underserved; * Individual Achievement Award: Rita Haynes, treasurer and manager of Faith Community United CU, Cleveland. Haynes assisted members who have filed for bankruptcy; * Individual Achievement Award: Tom Sargent, president/CEO, First Tech CU, Beaverton, Ore. Sargent’s leadership on the Credit Unions for Kids campaign helped credit unions gain visibility worth hundreds of millions of dollars in paid advertising; and * Outstanding Organization Award: Montana Credit Unions for Community Development in Billings, Mont. The five-year-old organization already has helped more than 50,000 people avoid predatory loans, keep more of their earned income, and open their first savings accounts.
NCUF Awards and Recognition Chairman Bob Schumacher, CEO of MountainCrest CU, Arlington, Wash., will be Master of Ceremonies at the event. Seats can be reserved online through the NCUF website. Use the resource link.
