CU Award Programs
CU Award Programs
Following the philosophy of “People helping people,” credit unions make a difference for their members and the communities they serve. While focusing on member needs, credit unions work for the ongoing development of communities through policies developed and accepted by the members.
The League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) promotes community and youth involvement among member credit unions through recognition awards such as the Distinguished Service Award, Credit Union of the Year, Professional of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award, Louis Herring Award for Philosophy in Action, and Desjardins Youth & Adult Financial Education Award. These award programs are in place to honor professionals, volunteers, and credit unions for excellence in leadership and service.
The LSCU is proud to recognize those professionals, volunteers, young professionals, and credit unions that have made outstanding contributions to the development and growth of the credit union movement.

The recipients of the LSCU Awards are selected by a committee of credit union CEOs from various sizes of credit unions in both states. View past winners of these awards in the LSCU Awards Archives.
CUNA’s National Award programs are designed to encourage and recognize distinguished credit unions which demonstrate social responsibility (the Dora Maxwell Award), the credit union philosophy (the Louise Herring Award), and financial education (the Desjardins Awards).
Online Submission Process

- Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award
- Louise Herring Philosophy-in-Action Member Service Award
- Desjardins Youth & Adult Financial Education Awards
