WASHINGTON-The National Cooperative Business Association is launching a national "Honor a HERO" contest in which credit unions and co-ops can share stories (in 200 words or less) about how a member of their staff has been a hero. The contest is being co-sponsored by CU Strategic Planning, Tacoma, Wash. Credit Union Journal is participating as media sponsor.

According to the NCBA, the goal is to create a public venue for the sharing of a "compelling story about helping members/consumers in financial distress and, in turn, helping them to help themselves." Nominees can be recognized for being a hero to an individual, a cause in their area or their entire community.
