The Emerging Leader Award is presented by the MD|DC Credit Union Association and honors the legacy of Miriam Rivera Lieb who was mentor to other leaders in the credit union movement and believed that credit unions should reflect the core principles of the movement – people helping people. The Award recognizes a young professional who shares Mimi’s dedication to making a difference in peoples’ lives, and has demonstrated the potential to be a leader.

The final phase of the competition is June 4, 2019 when the finalists present their ideas at the MD|DC Credit Union Association’s Annual Meeting & Convention. Attendees will vote on the presentations and a winner will be selected based on a combination of judges’ evaluations, online voting and votes cast by conference attendees. The winner receives a professional development package sponsored by CUNA Mutual Group worth up to $5,000.

“We are pleased to offer this unique opportunity to help cultivate and energize the next generation of credit union leaders, while also honoring Mimi Lieb's legacy and commitment to the credit union difference,” said John Bratsakis, president/CEO, MD|DC Credit Union Association.
