The awards ceremony will celebrate three national honors:
* Lifetime Achievement--Rudy Hanley, president/ CEO, SchoolsFirst FCU, Santa Ana, Calif. Hanley has been described as a visionary, consensus builder, and a respected voice for all in the credit union industry. * Individual Achievement: Daniel A. “Dan” Mica, former president/CEO, CUNA.
