The DSA, which honors individuals and organizations that have provided outstanding service to the global credit union movement, will be presented at the World Credit Union Conference, July 14-17 in Ottawa, Canada. The award is the international credit union system's highest honor.
"The Distinguished Service Award recognizes those who have dedicated their time, resources and attention to improving credit unions on an international scale," said Brian Branch, WOCCU president/CEO. "Their important work has positively impacted many members and families throughout the world who otherwise may not have had the life-changing opportunities their credit unions were able to provide."
Individuals and organizations that have furthered WOCCU's vision of "building a global community" through their activities and achievements are eligible for nomination.
Individual recipients may be WOCCU member-organization officers, directors or representatives; international credit union pioneers; field technicians; or individuals whose actions have benefitted global credit union development.
Institutional recipients may be organizations or agencies that have provided financial or technical assistance to develop international credit union movements and their service infrastructures during an extended period.
The DSA is not an annual award; it is presented based on the achievements and worthiness of candidates according to the award committee's review. WOCCU presents up to one institutional and three individual awards in a single year.
