It's that time of the year again when Credit Union Journal publishes its annual Best Practices issue, awarding progressive credit unions and, in many cases, their vendors, too, for impressive accomplishments in 2011. Many of this year's best ideas and practices cover health and wellness, lending, internal counsel, employee education, online tools, member service, and many more. There are so many awards this year that the magazine's winners will spill over into next week's issue as well. To find out more about this year's competition, we invited CU Journal's Publisher, Frank Diekmann, on the show to give us the inside scoop. As usual, Frank delivers with trends noticed, surprise stories, and the overall goal of this annual issue. Enjoy the program!
