Awards season is here but before you submit an entry for the Dora Maxwell, Louise Herring or Alphonse Desjardins awards, why not take an hour to learn tips and tricks from award winners and past judges?
On Thursday, June 27, at 2 p.m., MCUL & Affiliates will host a webinar entitled “Industry Awards: Why They Matter and What it Takes to Win.” This free session is open to anyone in the Michigan credit union community and will focus on the importance of using these award opportunities as a tool to share your credit union’s good works.
If your credit union has ever thought about entering but never taken the step, or if you’ve entered in the past and can’t figure out why you haven’t won, this is the webinar for you.
Entering these awards, as well as the MCUL/MCUF awards, does not need to be a difficult or a complicated process. Attend the webinar and hear directly from past judges and winners as to what makes a strong entry, and what you can be doing throughout the year to document your credit union’s efforts.
To register for the webinar, contact Kathryn Hall at Kathryn.Hall@mcul.org or (800) 262-6285, ext. 470.
