CU System
World Council DSA Nominations Due March 3
MADISON, Wis. (12/12/13)--Nominations for the World Council of Credit Unions' 2014 Distinguished Service Award, the international credit union system's highest honor, are due March 3.
 
The award will be presented during the closing ceremonies of the World Credit Union Conference, which meets July 27-30 in Gold Coast, Australia. 
 
The DSA honors individuals and organizations that have provided outstanding service to credit union development outside their home country.
 
"Since 1986, World Council has recognized key players in advancing the international credit union movement to where it is today through the Distinguished Service Award," said World Council President/CEO Brian Branch. "The recipients each year remind us how important it is to extend financial access to people who need it most--not just at home, but around the world."
 
Those that have furthered World Council's vision of "building a global community" are eligible for nomination. Individual recipients are those whose actions benefitted global credit union development beyond their national boundaries, while institutional recipients can be organizations or agencies providing financial or technical assistance to develop international credit union movements and their service infrastructures over an extended time.
 
DSA is not an annual award, but presented on achievements and worthiness, as determined by the award committee.  World Council can present up to one institutional and three individual awards in a given year.
 
This year's award recipients will be provided complimentary conference registration and one companion registration for the 2014 World Credit Union Conference.
 
Nominations must be made by a World Council member organization. To download a brochure and nomination form, and see a list of past winners, use the link.
