MADISON, Wis.- Nominations are now being accepted for the 15th Annual Herb Wegner Memorial Awards, which recognize individual, organizational and lifetime achievement by credit unionists dedicated to the National Credit Union Foundation’s mission of promoting consumer financial independence through credit unions. Established in 1988, the awards honor the memory of Herb Wegner who served as CUNA/ CUNA Service Group CEO from 1971 to 1978. Wegner’s legacy of innovation, activism and involvement established the criteria of traits sought in Wegner Award winners. Nominations can come from individuals and/or organizations and must be submitted to the NCUF by Friday, July 26, 2002.

The Individual Achievement Award honors an individual for their ongoing innovative concepts and accomplishments, as well as current contributions to the credit union community.
