CU Journal accepting nominations for ‘Best Practices’ awards


Credit Union Journal is seeking nominations for its Best Practices awards, which recognize innovative practices, policies, products, services or procedures that have a proven track record of success. Nominations are due by Aug. 1.

According to CU Journal:

The Best Practice Awards are aimed at recognizing achievements across the entire credit union enterprise, from improved member service, cross-sales, loan promotions, expense reductions, better deployment of staff, facilities, branch strategies, training, board programs, use of technology, and more.

In short, if your credit union has done something you believe deserves recognition and which other CUs could learn from, CU Journal’s Best Practices Awards are for you.

The criteria for entry are simple:

  • The Best Practice must have been deployed on or after May 1, 2015.
  • You are welcome to nominate more than one Best Practice if you are a credit union or CUSO, and more than one credit union if you are a vendor, CUSO or association.
  • The entry should include: 500 words or fewer on why you believe a Best Practice has been created and deployed.
  • The nomination essay should include as many tangible measures as practical (including ROI where available) documenting the best practice; the background on environment prior to the implementation of the best practice; factors driving adoption of the best practice, and any new products/solutions deployed to achieve the best practice.

CU Journal traditionally features between 20-25 Best Practices of all types and budgets.
