Awards programs

Marketing & Business Development Council awards programs

As a Marketing & Business Development Council member, you're encouraged to nominate your peers for a variety of awards and recognition programs. Whether you're seeking to gain recognition for your own internal credit union stars, or have peers who deserve the spotlight, acknowledge the best and brightest with our awards programs.

Diamond Awards

The most prestigious annual credit union marketing competition, the Diamond Awards recognize and reward creative excellence and outstanding results.

Recognition Awards

Thank you for your interest in Councils’ Recognition Awards. As we embark on our transformation into America's Credit Unions, we've decided to take time to reevaluate Councils’ Excellence Awards in 2024. This hiatus will allow us to carefully evaluate the best way to acknowledge the exceptional contributions of our members and their credit unions, aligning with the vision, mission, and purpose of our new organization.

Thank you for being part of this exciting transition. We look forward to sharing more updates and celebrating the achievements of our industry together.
