Democracy FCU to be Honored with CULAC Circle of Excellence Award

Fri, Feb 17, 2017

District Of Columbia

Democracy FCU will be honored with the inaugural ‘CULAC Circle of Excellence’ award at this year’s GAC in Washington, DC.  The award, new this year, is presented to the credit union that raised the most funds for CULAC (or an affiliated league federal PAC) in its state in the previous year.  We wanted to congratulate Democracy but also to thank all credit unions who have committed, participated in and donated to CULAC and to credit union advocacy in 2016.  Our Holiday sweepstakes raised nearly $7K alone for CULAC and ultimately for our credit union friendly members of Congress.  We hope to work with all our members raise even more in 2017 including with our next sweepstakes!  

A complete list of the 2016 Circle of Excellence winners can be viewed here.  Democracy and the other winners will be honored via recognition in a number of venues throughout the GAC, including in the CULAC Recognition of Donors book, on printed materials at CULAC events, and in a video presentation during the conference’s general session.

Thank you again to all members for your generous commitment to credit union advocacy.
