The Tekkie Awards

Nominations for the 2023 Finopotamus Tekkie Awards are open through June 5, 2023. Winners will be announced to celebrate our three-year anniversary in July. Most awards recognize credit unions and their technologists. However, this year we’ve added a new category: Tech CUSO of the Year.
