ICU Foundation Perpetual Awards
George Gilrowski Memorial (2003)
The credit union movement lost a dear friend last year when George Gilrowski passed away unexpectedly. In 1973 he began a sales career with CUNA Mutual in the Chicagoland area.
George received countless sales awards and honors. He qualified for the prestigious President's Council 10 times. He built many strong and lasting relationships over his 30-year career.
While dedicating his life to serving credit unions, he held several positions within CUNA Mutual, including Sales Manager and Account Vice President. George lived the "people helping people " motto. He worked hard to help credit unions be successful and became close friends with many he served.
Gifts from Motorola Employees Credit Union, the Illinois Credit Union League, ICUL Service Corporation, CUNA Mutual employees, Eldon Arnold, CEFCU, and other credit union friends established this award in George’s memory. Accepting the award on George’s behalf is his nephew, Steve Gilrowski.
