Blanchard named to 2010 Coop Hall of Fame
WASHINGTON (9/28/09)--Credit union pioneer Larry Blanchard was selected for spring induction into the Cooperative Hall of Fame, the Cooperative Development Foundation announced. He will be recognized at the annual Hall of Fame Dinner and Induction Ceremony at Washington’s National Press Club May 5. Blanchard’s nomination was recommended by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Cooperative Alliances Committee with the approval of the CUNA board. He was head of communications in CUNA’s Washington, D.C., office during the late 1980s and early 1990s before going to CUNA Mutual Group. Blanchard retired from CUNA Mutual in December 2008 as senior vice president for special projects. He now serves as a consultant for corporate and legislative affairs at CUNA Mutual. Blanchard was a shaper of today’s credit union landscape, the foundation said. He was an employee and organizer of credit unions who worked for every major credit union organization in the U.S. Blanchard also was a credit union development educator who helped guide the evolution of the Campus Credit Union Council. Blanchard was a leader of Operation Grassroots--an effort to maintain regulatory independence for credit unions. He was one of four people selected. The others are Glenn English (rural utilities), Werqu Mekasha (agriculture) and David Thompson (general).
