CUNA HR/TD Council Excellence Awards
The CUNA HR/TD Council's Award Program recognizes and honors credit unions that exemplify excellence in the human resources and training disciplines and serves to promote credit union philosophies through people leadership.
The distinction is reserved exclusively for the credit union HR/TD elite. Those who in all aspects of their chosen profession, consistently excel for the benefit of their credit union, uphold the standards of the HR/TD professional ethics and contribute to the credit union movement.
