Celebrate a Lifetime of Achievement

The Marketing & Business Development Council's Marketing Professional of the Year Award and Business Development Professional of the Year Award represent what is known as a “career year,” that period of time when you make all the right moves and the pieces fall into place. But only one award honors a lifetime of such achievement.

The Lifetime Achievement Award alone recognizes marketing and business development professionals who have excelled at this difficult discipline throughout their professional careers. It’s an honor not easily won, and even less frequently bestowed. But it’s of vital importance in its measure of excellence, and is the Marketing & Business Development Council's most prestigious honor.

Winner Recognition

The winner will be announced at the 28th Annual CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council Conference, March 21-24, 2021 in Los Angeles. In addition to recognition throughout the credit union movement, each Lifetime Achievement inductee receives the following honors:

  • The prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award;
  • Recognition in Credit Union Magazine;
  • Complimentary registration to the conference;
  • The opportunity to help select the following year’s recipient and present the award.
