Valdov Perkins receive Virginias top awards
RESTON, Va. (5/18/09)--Former Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Chairman Juri Valdov and Charles Perkins were presented with top honors by the Virginia Credit Union League during the league's 75th Annual Meeting in Reston, Va. earlier this month.
Valdov, retired president/CEO of the $1.5 billion, Herndon-based Northwest FCU, received the league's Eugene H. Farley Jr. Award of Excellence. As CUNA chairman from 2005 to 2007, Valdov championed credit union involvement in financial education efforts, especially for young people. He retired the CEO position at Northwest in December 2007 after a 36-year career in the credit union movement. Until March this year, Valdov served as the credit union's senior vice president of external affairs. That position allowed him to continue promoting credit unions' participation in charitable and community-based projects and financial education initiatives, such as Credit Union Miracle Day Inc. and the annual CU Cherry Blossom 10-Mile Run in Washington, D.C. Perkins, a longtime credit union leader in Virginia and retired president/CEO of Roanoke-based Freedom First FCU, was awarded the league's James P. Kirsch Lifetime Achievement Award. Perkins worked for several credit unions and credit union trade associations. In addition to Freedom First FCU, he served with Woodbridge-based Belvoir FCU, two Washington D.C.-based credit unions--Walter Reed Army Medical Center FCU and Agriculture FCU--and Ohio-based Schiable Employees CU. He also worked for the Virginia and Michigan credit union leagues.
