Best Practices Awards Now Open
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-CU Journal is accepting nominations for its 2010 Best Practices Awards. We've deliberately made it very easy to enter. Nominations may be submitted by credit unions themselves, a CUSO, a trade association and suppliers to the CU community that have clients they believe exemplify the best practice in implementing a particular product or service. Go to www.cujournal.com for details.The criteria are as follows:* Best practice must have been deployed since June 1, 2009.* Create a category for the nomination. Categories can be from any aspect of running a credit union. A credit union can be nominated in more than one category. Nominators are welcome to nominate more than one credit union.* The entry should include: 500 words or fewer on why it believes it has created a best practice within its operation. * 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.And here's the part that always has great appeal: there is no charge for entries. It's free! Nominations should be e-mailed to the Managing Editor Lisa Freeman at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit the Letters to the Editor form and submit your Best Practice there.Deadline for entries is July 1. Winners will be profiled in Credit Union Journal later this year.
