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.
