This year we are going to honor FOUR area principals in our field of membership who make a difference each and every day. We are accepting nominations from now until September 26, 2021. Nominate your principal below to be one of our four Principal Award recipients for National Principals Month. A committee composed of credit union employees will select the finalists from all the nominations submitted to receive an honorarium of $500 for their campus and be eligible to be named our 2021 Principal of The Year. The four finalists will be announced the week of October 4, 2021, at which time the public may submit their vote for our 2021 Principal of The Year. The top finalist with the most votes will be announced the week of October 12, 2021, and win a $2,500 grand prize donation to their campus.
