What past judges have said

What I got out of my first year as a judge was exposure to the most innovative and creative ideas in marketing and BD. I was blown away by the level of professionalism in the entries and it has motivated me to step up my own game. If you’re thinking of being a judge, it is a big responsibility that will test your experience in many ways. But it is well worth the time and effort, as you are able to be a part of the best credit union marketing and BD minds out there.
