    The Chapter Attendance Award was established to give recognition to chapters that each year reach out to the greatest number of members within their chapter area.

CUNA Awards

Administered by the Kentucky Credit Union League & Affiliates and CUNA, the Louise Herring, Dora Maxwell and Alphonse Desjardins awards programs are a wonderful way for credit unions to showcase all the great things they do for their members and their communities.

Below you'll find a brief description of each of the programs:

Louise Herring Award
The purpose of this award is to promote credit union philosophy by formally recognizing credit unions that demonstrate in an extraordinary way the practical application of that philosophy for their members.

Dora Maxwell Award
The purpose of this award is to promote social responsibility among credit unions by formally recognizing their community service achievements.

Alphonse Desjardins Award
Alphonse Desjardins was a credit union pioneer who was instrumental in forming the Canadian and U.S. credit union movements. Besides helping to found the first credit unions in Canada and the U.S., Desjardins pioneered youth savings clubs and in-school "banks", known as caisses scolaires. This award honors leadership within the credit union movement on behalf of youth and adult financial literacy.

In an effort to streamline the submission process for our member credit unions and to reduce financial and human resources spent on the submission process, CUNA and the Leagues have collaborated to produce one standardized format and online submission process for our member credit unions.
