Wegner award recipients credit collaboration for success
WASHINGTON (2/26/14)--In accepting their Herb Memorial Awards from the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) Monday night, the four recipients credited shared efforts and collaboration for their success.
 
Lifetime achievement awards were bestowed upon Tim Haegelin, retired president/CEO of Generations FCU, San Antonio; Jim McCormack, retired president/CEO of the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA), Harrisburg; and Gary Oakland, retired president/CEO of BECU, Tukwila, Wash.
 
Sarah Canepa Bang, president/COO of CO-OP Shared Branching-FSCC and chief strategy officer of CO-OP Shared Branching, received the individual achievement award.
 
"This is not about me winning an award. This is about collaboration, friendship and shared efforts," Oakland said.
 
After receiving his award, Haegelin said, "I was lucky because I was blessed with a board that embraced the credit union difference and then made sure I had the tools to succeed."
 
Current PCUA President/CEO Patrick Conway, Senior Vice President Michael Wishnow and Chair Maria LaVelle accepted the award on behalf of McCormack.
 
 "When informed that he had won this most prestigious award, Jim stated that the award was not for him, but for Pennsylvania," Wishnow said.
 
"It's been my experience that the credit union movement loves innovation and hard work," said Canepa Bang. "How else but innovation and hard work could we have built a delivery channel of over 7,200 locations for millions of credit union members?"
 
This year's winners joined an elite group of 51 individuals and 24 organizations whose efforts over the past 26 years have earned them the recognition of Herb Wegner Memorial Awards. The dinner was held in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association's 2014 Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington.
