Each year, Dakota Credit Union Association (DakCU) recognizes outstanding leadership and engagement within our Dakota credit union community by presenting prestigious honors at the Awards Banquet during the Annual DakCU Summit.
Marketing and Communications Awards encompass three credit union asset sizes with three distinct award categories including: Complete Marketing Campaign; Social Media Campaign; and Printed Marketing Campaign.
Social Impact Awards include both credit unions and individuals. One credit union from each state, North and South Dakota, along with one individual from each state, are eligible for this honor.
Professional of the Year – recognizes one dedicated credit union employee that consistently performs in an extraordinary manner.
Emerging Leader – recognizes one credit union employee each year that is considered a rising star.
Volunteer of the Year – recognizes one credit union volunteer that has selflessly contributed time, effort, and talent to the development of the credit union movement.
Chapter of the Year – recognizes one active chapter for its outstanding achievements.
