The awards honor credit unions that exemplify excellence in human resources and training, and promote credit union philosophies through leadership.
Empower FCU, Syracuse, N.Y., with $1.2 billion in assets, and Red Canoe CU, Longview, Wash., with $581 million in assets, won best of show for their joint project, CO-OPetition.

Employee engagement awards went to Gerber FCU, Fremont, Mich., less than $499 million in assets; Smart Financial CU, Houston, $500 million-$1 billion in assets; and Suncoast CU, Tampa, Fla., more than $1 billion in assets.
For HR/TD management practices, honorees were Heritage Trust FCU, Summerville, S.C., less than $499 million in assets; and Mountain America CU, West Jordan, Utah, more than $1 billion in assets.
Strategic leadership awards were bestowed on Consumers CU, Kalamazoo, Mich., for leadership and succession planning, $500 million-$1 billion in assets; and United FCU, St. Joseph, Mich., for skill-based pay, more than $1 billion in assets.
