Awards Programs

LSCU’s credit unions and their leadership do great things. In order to celebrate their good work, both CUNA and the LSCU have designed a variety of national and state recognition awards. For more information, click the links below.


LSCU Awards

Following the philosophy of "people helping people," credit unions continue to make a difference for their members and the communities they serve. While focusing on membership needs, credit unions work for the ongoing development of communities through policies developed and accepted by the members.

The LSCU is proud to recognize professionals, volunteers and credit unions that have made outstanding contributions to the development and growth of the credit union movement through the LSCU Awards process and by participating in the CUNA Awards program.

Nominations for the LSCU Awards may be made by chapters, individuals, volunteers and credit unions. Click here for details and application requirements on each award.

LSCU Awards categories are:

Distinguished Service Award
Professional of the Year
Young Professional of the Year
Volunteer of the Year
Credit Union of the Year: up to $100 million in assets
Credit Union of the Year: $100-$500 million in assets
Credit Union of the Year: $500 million or more

This year, in recognition of the LSCU's growth to include three states, our Professional of the Year, Volunteer of the Year and Credit Union of the Year awards will be presented to LSCU-affiliated credit unions in Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

The nomination period for the 2020 LSCU Awards has closed. Winners will be announced at the Southeast Credit Union Conference & Expo
