About the Foundation Dinner
The Foundation Dinner is our primary fundraising event. The generosity and support of attendees and sponsors directly affects our ability to catalyze change through credit unions.
A mainstay of the annual event is the Herb Wegner Memorial Awards ceremony—the credit union movement’s highest national honors. Join us March 4th, 2024 at Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC. Register Today!

Judy S. DeLucca
Over the span of 40 years, Judy DeLucca has been a catalyst in the financial rights movement to help improve people’s financial lives through credit unions. This is evident through her commitment to ensure that over 50% of the credit union staff maintains the designation through CUNA of being a Certified Credit Union Financial Counselor.

Under Bob’s leadership, TruStage has experienced record growth and strengthened the credit union system because the company places customers at the center of its strategy and deliver innovative solutions through their preferred channels. Under his leadership, TruStage has embraced the idea of “doing well by doing good” to benefit the credit union system and our society, and it has led to strong business results and a culture that resonates with and excites employees. He genuinely cares about people and uses his position of influence to improve their lives without expecting recognition or fanfare in return.
More coming soon.
