Barden retired in 1998 after 16 years as the president/CEO of Beckman Employees CU--now Fullerton, Calif.-based Pacific Community CU. He was the 1980 recipient of the league's Leo H. Shapiro Lifetime Achievement Award.  Prior to that, he was manager of Los Angeles County Employees CU No. 11, now First City CU, which he joined in 1971.  He served as an education specialist at the league from 1961 to 1971. Barden also served two terms as league director, served on 10 league committees, chaired Western Corporate FCU's supervisory committee and helped create the Credit Union Deposit Network. He was involved with WCMS since its inception in 1962 and chaired its Board of Trustees from 1971 through 1997. Dr. James Likens, WCMS president, said a WCMS scholarship will likely be established in Barden's name.  Barden was the son of Lance Barden, who organized more than 400 credit unions, including the first credit union in Nevada, and the Hawaii Credit Union League.
