CU Award Programs

Following the philosophy of “People helping people,” credit unions continue to make a difference for their members and the communities they serve. While focusing on membership needs, credit unions work for the ongoing development of communities through policies developed and accepted by the members.

The LSCU is proud to recognize professionals, volunteers, and credit unions that have made outstanding contributions to the development and growth of the credit union movement through the LSCU Awards process and by participating in the CUNA Awards program.

Nominations for the LSCU Awards are now open and may be made by chapters, individuals, volunteers, and credit unions. The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2019. Winners of these awards will be announced at SCUCE, June 19-21, 2019 in Orlando. 

CUNA Awards nominations will open March 4, 2019.
