INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Credit Union League has honored credit unions for their achievement in the areas of community service, credit union philosophy in action and excellence in delivering financial literacy content. These awards are named for credit union pioneers in each of the areas. Those credit union entries receiving first place honors in their asset size category in Indiana were forwarded on to the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) national competition. National winners will be recognized in early 2018.
