CUANY remembers past president Berris Gordon
ALBANY, N.Y. (11/9/11)--Berris R. Gordon, former president of the Credit Union Association of New York (CUANY), died Nov. 1 at the age of 90, according to CUANY.

Gordon was with the association, then known as the New York State Credit Union League, for 14 years.  He joined in 1964 as a field representative serving the Metropolitan Chapter. In 1970, he was promoted to educational services director, where he planned and supervised the league's newsletter and other publications, league-sponsored workshops, conferences and other educational sessions. In 1978, he was unanimously appointed president of the organization's board of directors.

Before joining the league staff, Gordon served as office manager of Local One S FCU, which served New York City employees of Macy's, for 12 years. He also served as a member of the Metropolitan Chapter Council and as co-chairman of its education committee.

Gordon retired as president of the league in 1984 to pursue horticultural interests. He held the office of president longer than any of his predecessors. He is survived by his wife Joyce, daughter Wendy and other relatives and friends. His daughter Gail preceded him in death in 2009.
