Cann previously served as chairman of the NASCUS executive council.
 
Recipients of the award best demonstrate outstanding service, leadership and commitment to NASCUS and the dual-chartering system. The Pierre Jay Award, first awarded in 1997, is named after the first Commissioner of Banks in Massachusetts. Cann is the first Pierre Jay winner who has been both a state regulator and a credit union executive.
 
"When we created the Pierre Jay Award, it was meant for honorees like Parker who have made countless contributions to NASCUS and to the state credit union system," said Mary Martha Fortney, NASCUS president/CEO. "Parker continues to set such a high standard for excellence and was truly passionate about states' rights and the important work to preserve the safety and soundness of the state credit union system."
 
Among the general session speakers at this week's summit were Debbie Matz, National Credit Union Administration chairman, and Jeff Post, president/CEO of CUNA Mutual Group. (See News Now coverage in Thursday's issue. Use the links.)
 
The general session closed with a panel titled "Working Together on System Priorities: The Credit Union Leadership Forum" and included Bill Cheney, Credit Union National Association president; Dan Berger, National Association of Federal Credit Union president/CEO; and Fortney. The panel was moderated by Arty Arteaga, president/CEO of the Defense Credit Union Council. 
 
Cheney reiterated CUNA's commitment to reducing regulatory burden for credit unions.  He also noted the importance of one of the top NASCUS priorities--keeping the state charter strong and preserving the dual chartering system.
