New Orleans Firemen’s Federal Credit Union (NOFFCU) has been chosen as Credit Union of the Year by the National Association of Federally- Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU). NOFFCU and other winners in NAFCU’s 2021 Annual Awards Competition were honored during NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus.
"At NOFFCU, our goal is to simplify our members’ lives. We strive to incorporate new strategies so that our membership has access to financial services designed to empower them to improve their lives," said NOFFCU CEO Judy DeLucca. "During 2020, with a worldwide health crisis and numerous storm events, it was crucial to ensure the communities we serve had a partner committed to their success. We are honored that NAFCU has recognized our efforts in striving to better the lives of our members and communities."
This year’s NAFCU Annual Awards Competition honored eight winners in total and was selected by a committee of credit union leaders. Nominees for CEO of the Year, Credit Union of the Year, Professional of the Year and Volunteer of the Year were judged in two categories: credit unions with assets of more than $250 million and those with assets of $250 million or less. NOFFCU was a winner among credit unions with $250 million or less in assets.
Annual Awards Competition winners were celebrated during the conference and profiled in the September-October 2021 edition of The NAFCU Journal magazine.
