Libro Growing Prosperity Award
Libro Credit Union has enjoyed a multitude of successes because of so many bold, passionate, and epic people who have contributed their energy, enthusiasm and expertise to make our credit union what it is today. To celebrate this culture of excellence, Libro is thrilled to announce the Growing Prosperity Award, part of our reward and recognition program.
The Growing Prosperity Award recognizes outstanding achievement at Libro, in the credit union system, or the nominee’s local community. This award honours individuals who have made an exceptional and significant contribution to growing prosperity in southwestern Ontario or to transforming banking. Eligibility applies to initiatives at Libro, as well as those not directly connected to Libro, such as not-for-profit volunteer work, serving on a community board, or being involved on a municipal committee. The central theme focuses on activities that boost prosperity across the region!
