NWCUF Opens Nominations For Summit, CUNA Awards
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (6/25/13)--The Northwest Credit Union Foundation is taking online nominations to recognize outstanding credit unions and professionals during the 2013 awards season.

The entry deadline is July 19 for nominations for the state Summit Awards honoring individuals as well as Credit Union National Association's awards recognizing credit unions' positive community impact. Awards will be presented during Amplify, the Northwest Credit Union Association's annual convention Oct. 8-10 in Portland, Ore.

The Summit Awards recognize outstanding achievement in three categories:

  • Young Credit Union Professional, for professionals 35 and younger;
  • Innovation and Impact, a new category showcasing an individual's positive impact on the credit union movement during the past three years; and
  • Lifetime Achievement Award, for a credit union professional whose leadership documents social impact, embracement of the credit union philosophy, effective advocacy and community improvement. Candidates are selected by NWCUA's executive leadership and board, with senior credit union leaders invited to vote if more than one candidate is selected.
State and regional winners of the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award, the Desjardins Youth and Adult Financial Education Awards, and the Louise Herring Philosophy in Action Member Service Awards, move on to the national stage to compete nationally in CUNA's awards program.
