CU Award Winners Provide Shining Examples
UNCASVILLE, Conn. (10/11/13)--Four credit unions received Credit Union National Association Community Credit Union of the Year Awards Thursday, recognizing community credit unions that best exemplify the principles of the credit union movement while serving as a positive influence in the field of service.

The credit unions received their honors during a ceremony at CUNA's Community Credit Union & Growth Conference in Uncasville, Conn. The three-day conference ends today.

Winners among credit unions with more than $250 million in assets were:
  • First place: Freedom First CU, Salem, Va.; and
  • Honorable mention: BayPort CU, Newport News, Va.
Winners among credit unions with less than $250 million in assets were:
  • First place: St. Louis (Mo.) Community CU; and
  • Honorable mention: Dakotaland CU, Huron, S.D.
The awards program is open to community chartered credit unions and those with multiple select employee groups. This includes credit unions that, in all aspects, consistently excell in the advancement of the ideals of the credit union movement, are proactive in their communities, and provide a wide array of services that meet the needs of their diverse communities.

Judges praised this year's entries for their:
  • Long-range commitment to developing sustainable initiatives benefiting low- and medium-income members, urban and rural;
  • Innovative campaigns that publicize the credit union difference to the masses;
  • Use of available tools such as Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and Low-Income Credit Union (LICU) designations; and
  • Commitment to being community action organizations.
