Tennessee Credit Union Hall of Fame

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 Hall of Fame Inductees!

Fill out the form…

The Tennessee Credit Union Hall of Fame recognizes the commitment, leadership, and dedication that deserving individuals have made to the credit union movement.

Tenure of service, contributions, achievements, and the impact the individual has made, not only at their respective credit union(s) but also in the industry, are among the considerations.


The Hall of Fame was created to honor those in the credit union movement who reflect a history of service to credit unions. Nominees are selected for their records of achievement within their own credit union and for achievements that have benefited many credit unions. These persons are inducted into the Hall of Fame because they have been key players in organizing and running credit unions. Beyond that, they contributed to other credit unions through service to the chapters, the Tennessee Credit Union League, Volunteer Corporate Credit Union, and in some cases, the Credit Union National Association.

Eligibility

Any Tennessee-affiliated credit union employees and volunteers are eligible for this award. Please note that credit union professionals no longer employed by a credit union and volunteers who enjoyed distinguished careers in the movement are also eligible for this award program. 

Nomination Procedures

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 Hall of Fame Inductees.

Inductees are chosen by a panel of judges who consider the following criteria when making their selections:

  • Years of service to the credit union system;
  • Positions of leadership on the state, local or national level;
  • Demonstrated commitment to the credit union philosophy and services; and
  • Credit union system educational accomplishments and support.

Nominations are due April 23, 2021.
