LSCU COOP / Cooperative Initiatives / 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.

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, Desjardins Youth & Adult Financial Education Award, and Brother's Keepers. These award programs are in place to honor professionals, volunteers, and credit unions for excellence in leadership and service.

LSCU Awards

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.
