Excellence in lending entries deadline Aug. 5
MADISON, Wis. (5/27/11)--Entries are being accepted for the 12th annual Excellence in Lending Awards, which recognizes outstanding lending results and practices by credit unions. CUNA Mutual Group and the CUNA Lending Council established the Excellence in Lending Awards in 2000. The Excellence in Lending Awards recognize 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, said the organization. “This competition offers the opportunity for a credit union to be recognized as one of the industry’s best lenders,” said Dan Murray, vice president for lending services at CUNA Mutual. “This national recognition provides a great opportunity for credit unions to promote their award-winning lending success locally to potential members.” Credit unions may be nominated for the 2011 award in four categories:
* Consumer Lending Excellence--for credit unions with assets less than $250 million, and for more than $250 million; * Mortgage Lending Excellence--for those with assets less than $250 million, and for more than $250 million; * Low/Modest Means Excellence--any asset level; and * Business Lending Excellence--any asset level.
The awards will be presented at the CUNA Lending Council’s annual conference, Nov. 6-9 in New Orleans. Airfare, hotel and conference registration for one representative from each winning credit union is included with the award. For more information, use the link.
