Nominate CU champion for NAFCU's 2019 Paul Revere Award

Capitol HillNAFCU is now accepting member credit union applications for the association's 2019 Paul Revere Award, which recognizes a credit union champion who goes to great lengths in his or her grassroots and political efforts.

"We are proud to honor a credit union champion each year with the Paul Revere Award as their efforts bolster NAFCU's award-winning advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill," said NAFCU Director of Political Affairs Chad Adams. "The positive changes we've accomplished in the legislative and regulatory environments wouldn't be possible without our members' commitment to political and grassroots advocacy. We look forward to honoring the winner in September."

The deadline for entries is Aug. 16. The winner will be announced and recognized during NAFCU's Congressional Caucus, Sept. 8-11 in Washington. Attendees can save $200 off registration with the code CAUCUSAVINGS through Friday; see who's on the speaker lineup so far here.

  • be from a NAFCU-member credit union;
  • have held at least two meetings during 2018 or 2019 with each of their members of Congress (two senators and one representative);
  • have responded to all NAFCU Grassroots Alerts by completing the actions requested, such as phone calls, emails and letters to their lawmakers; and
  • be in regular contact with NAFCU for the most up-to-date legislative and regulatory information.
