About the Award
First presented in 1997, the Pierre Jay Award is named for the first Commissioner of Banks in Massachusetts, Pierre Jay. He learned of the cooperative credit union movement in Milan, Italy, and quickly embraced the concept. Working with philanthropist and credit union pioneer Edward Filene of Boston, Jay championed credit union development in the United States.
NASCUS members may submit nominations for the Pierre Jay for individuals and organizations that have demonstrated extraordinary commitment and dedication to the credit union system and/or to NASCUS.
NASCUS’ Pierre Jay Award Committee reviews nominations and a winner(s) are announced during NASCUS’s annual State System Summit (S3).
