The 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.

Thanks for your interest in the awards program. At this time, we are determining what our new Association’s awards program will look like. We will communicate any next steps soon.

Spirit of Micro-Communities

This award recognizes one or more events that embodied the spirit of Micro-Communities and fostered one or more of the following:

  • Leadership
  • Mentorship
  • Community giveback
  • Credit union awareness
  • DEI
  • Education
  • Other

Spirit of Innovation

Recognizes an out-of-the-box event or ongoing program that brings awareness to a specific cause or organization and encompasses the “People Helping People” philosophy.

Fearless Leader

Recognizes an individual who far exceeds the call of service to their board — an all-in, go-getter, “let’s make it happen” type of person. This individual leads by example and empowers others to make a difference.

Opportunities to Spotlight Your Impact

We also will be highlighting the impact Micro-Communities make to the broader Credit Union Movement as part of the celebration. Please submit any relevant photos, videos, or marketing collateral from events or activities you’ve organized over the past year and a half. You’re also encouraged to submit a high-resolution version of your logo.
