The Northwest Credit Union Association is proud to recognize those professionals, volunteers, and credit unions that have made outstanding contributions to the development and growth of the credit union movement. The Association’s award programs include the Summit Awards (administered and presented on behalf of the Oregon and Washington Credit Union Foundations); Advocacy Awards, Chapter Excellence Awards, and CUNA Awards. These awards recognize the best our industry has to offer including annual awards that acknowledge lifetime contributions to the credit union movement, social responsibility and excellence in advocacy, among others. These award programs are in place to honor professionals, volunteers, credit unions, and chapters for excellence in leadership and service. Award presentations occur at several events throughout the Annual Convention.
The professional award program recognizes leaders who advance the Northwest credit union movement. They honor individuals that promote the credit union philosophy, create innovative concepts, and provide leadership that has/had a significant and lasting impact on the credit union movement. The professional award program honors individuals in the categories of Mark of Excellence, Credit Union Professional of the Year, and Young Credit Union Professional of the Year.
The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility, Louise Herring Philosophy in Action and Desjardins Financial Literacy awards allow state-level winners to advance to national judging and receive recognition for their commitment to carrying on the credit union philosophy of “people helping people.”
Volunteers are an integral part of the credit union movement and their contributions deserve recognition. Their contributions resonate throughout the credit union community by illuminating the most important part of the credit union structure. The Volunteer Award Programs honor and rewards those volunteers within the Northwest credit union community who have exemplified outstanding leadership and service.
Credit union participation in the legislative and political process is essential for the long-term survival of our movement. Strong advocacy programs are a key piece of winning legislative battles, defending legislative attacks and giving credit unions the opportunity to thrive. The Advocacy Awards recognize credit union grassroots participation in legislative and regulatory activities.
Chapters are an important part of the credit union system and another way that we can differentiate ourselves. Chapter Excellence Awards will be presented in 5 categories. One award for each of the 4 pillars, leadership, education, advocacy, philosophy in action and one award for the overall best practices.
The Spectrum Marketing Awards is a volunteer-driven annual program honoring excellence in credit union communications and marketing. Categories include Digital Media/E-Marketing, Public Relations, Branding, Print, Broadcast, Website, Coordinated Campaign. View the best of what marketing professionals bring to the credit union movement in the Spectrum gallery, and help celebrate their achievements at the awards.
