Wegner Awards nominations open through June 17
MADISON, Wis. (3/27/08)--All individuals and organizations within the credit union system can make nominations for the credit union movement’s highest national honors: the 21st Annual Herb Wegner Memorial Awards presented by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF). “The foundation is calling for Wegner Awards nominations two months earlier than in previous years,” noted NCUF Executive Director Steve Delfin. “We anticipate attendance at the Wegner Awards Dinner will again reach the Grand Hyatt’s seating capacity--so we plan to announce the award recipients two months earlier as well. Our plan is to begin taking reservations for the 2009 dinner as early as September 2008.” Nominations are due by June 17 for:
* The Individual Achievement Award, honoring an unsung hero for innovative concepts and/or accomplishments that have made a significant impact on the national and/or international credit union movements within the past 10 years--or now have a significant potential impact. Nominations must cite a specific subject of achievement. Examples include financial literacy, service to the unserved or underserved, alternatives to predatory lending, and/or new products. * The Outstanding Organization/Outstanding Program Award, honoring an organization or business for innovative concepts and/or products/services that have made a significant impact with measured results on the national and/or international credit union movements. * The Lifetime Achievement Award, honoring an individual who has dedicated his/her life to promoting credit union philosophy. This person must have created innovative concepts and provided leadership that has made a significant and lasting impact on the national and/or international credit union movements.
There are four steps to make a nomination:
* Use the Resource link to print out the Wegner Awards brochure and nomination form; * Fill out the nomination form; * Gather at least five letters of recommendation citing examples of the nominee’s achievements relevant to the award criteria, and * Mail the nomination form and recommendation letters to NCUF by June 17.
Awards will be presented at the 21st Annual Herb Wegner Memorial Awards Dinner on Feb. 23. The dinner will take place at the Grand Hyatt Washington in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association’s 2009 Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C.
