MADISON, Wis. (8/1/08)--The deadline for Excellence in Lending Award nominations is Aug. 8. The ninth annual awards, which recognize outstanding lending results and practices by credit unions, will be presented Nov. 3 at the CUNA Lending Council Annual Conference. The Excellence in Lending Award identifies and shares examples of lending excellence within the credit union movement by recognizing individual credit unions for their ability to serve members while sustaining sound financial performance. Credit unions demonstrating an ability to meet their members’ needs through innovation are excellent award candidates, say the sponsors, CUNA Mutual Group and the CUNA Lending Council. The two groups established the Excellence in Lending Awards in 2000. Nominations can be made for the 2008 award in these categories:
* Consumer Lending Excellence Award--assets under $250 million and assets greater than $250 million; * Mortgage Lending Excellence Award--assets under $250 million and assets greater than $250 million; * Low/Modest Means Excellence Award--any asset level; and * Business Lending Excellence Award--any asset level.
The CUNA Lending Council annual conference is Nov. 2-5 in Orlando, Fla. Airfare, hotel and conference registration for one representative of each winning credit union is included with the award. For more information on the awards or applying for an award, use the resource link.
