The Dora Maxwell Award is named for the credit union pioneer who worked to improve the living standards of the underserved. She held numerous volunteer positions at the local and national level in addition to organizing hundreds of credit unions and worked with many organizations on behalf of the poor. Credit unions can receive the award for involvement in almost any kind of activity that helps other people or strengthens the structure of a community. This may include raising funds for charity, educational activities, or community involvement projects.


The entries from the Dakotas were judged this year by an awards committee made up of ten judges from the Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN). Each credit union will be recognized with an engraved award plaque during the 2020 CUAD Annual Summit being held at the Sheraton Sioux Falls & Convention Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, May 4-6, 2020.
