LATHAM, N.Y. — The New York State Credit Union League has inducted four credit union leaders who have had a significant impact on credit unions at the local, state or national level, and have dedicated their lives to the philosophy and success of the credit union movement into its Hall of Fame.

Greg Card assumed control of Syracuse Federal Credit Union in 1981, managing the credit union from his home while working as a Syracuse police officer. When he retired in 1989, he concentrated all his time on the credit union, growing membership from 500 police officers to more than 26,000 members. Today, the credit union has $101 million in assets and is expanding. While no longer with the credit union, Card is involved in the building of the CU’s newest branch. Card also established the SHARENET! Network of surcharge-free, credit union-owned ATMs during the 1990s. In 1997, Card joined the NYSCUL board and served until this year. In addition to overseeing the successful growth of Syracuse FCU, Card promoted credit union-friendly legislation through his lobbying effort and involvement with CULAC/CUPAC. He was also a New York Credit Union Foundation trustee.
