CU System
Barden Matous named California unsung heroes in California
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (12/26/07)--The late Lance Barden and Margaret "Maggie" Matous of Oakland have received "Unsung Hero" awards from the California Credit Union League's Historical Preservation Committee. The awards honor individuals with at least 20 years' service. Barden's 28-year career began when he was elected treasurer of the new Berkely Farm Credit Administration CU. He worked 22 years as a federal examiner for the Credit Union Section of the Farm Credit Administration (now the National Credit Union Administration). He organized more than 400 credit unions, including the first credit union in Nevada--Sierra Nevada Power FCU. In 1949, he organized the first eight credit unions in Alaska. He is the only federal examiner to organize a credit union league or trade association--the Hawaii Credit Union League in 1936. He also worked with the California league in a variety of volunteer and staff positions. Matous' career began in 1961 as an accounting manager for Aerojet FCU. She served nearly 25 years as CEO of what is now Schools FCU, Sacramento. She pioneered several programs, including one of the first share draft programs in the state; volunteered at the state and national level of the movement; served on advisory councils for the Filene Research Institute and Department of Corporations; and served on the Credit Union Executives Society board. In 1993, she became the league's director of special projects, implementing programs through the Shapiro Group and Filene Foundation to assist smaller credit unions and individual credit union employees. She also served as CEO of the Marin County FCU from 1994 until her retirement in 2000.
