New for 2020 - Share Your Story

Credit unions are doing amazing things during these unprecedented times. With that in mind, CUNA Operations & Member Experience Council is proud to announce that the traditional awards will transition to ‘Share Your Story’ for 2020.

Take advantage of this opportunity to celebrate by sharing your story and that of others who have been supporting members during this challenging year. Submit your stories, videos and photos to show us how you’ve been making a difference in your members’ lives. The stories collected will then be shared in connection with upcoming events, along with other operations and technology professionals. This awards campaign is a transition from the usual annual awards for this year only. Join us in celebrating your achievements and those of your peers. Submissions will be accepted through August 10, 2020.

Excellence in Operations & Member Experience Award

As operations and member experience professionals, we are asked to develop solutions to a variety of problems. Often, we research situations and develop entirely new and possibly unique practices for our credit union’s operations and member experience areas. Identifying these new approaches and recognizing their universal application to credit unions nationwide is the purpose of the CUNA Excellence in Operations & Member Experience Awards. One of our hallmarks is sharing the approaches to these solutions with our peers.

Professional of the Year Award
