Recognition Awards


Each year, our Recognition Awards program honors credit unions and individuals for their exceptional contributions to the credit union movement and the members they serve. This year, all Recognition Award winners will be honored at EXCEL 23, the New York Credit Union Association's Annual Meeting & Convention on Friday, June 16 at the Sagamore Resort in Bolton Landing, NY!

Credit Union Awards

Please note: All credit union Recognition Awards will be submitted online! In an effort to make the submission process as streamlined and easy as possible, the Association and CUNA have partnered together to develop an online submission system. Simply visit the 2023 CUNA Awards portal and follow the online instructions.

The following awards are presented to deserving credit unions each year: the Louise Herring Philosophy in Action Member Service Award, the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award and the Desjardins Financial Education Awards.

Credit unions cannot submit a program for recognition that is simply a continuation or repeat of a program which won an award in 2022.

Individual Awards

The following awards are presented to deserving individuals each year: Outstanding Young Professional, Outstanding Professional, Outstanding Volunteer, and the New York Credit Union Hall of Fame.

Note: All individual Recognition Awards will be submitted online.
