Illinois Credit Union Hall of Fame
Charles F. Nagel
Chuck Nagel was involved in the credit union movement for over 24 years. As CEO of Glenbrook Credit Union, he also found time to volunteer to serve on the Northern Cook County Chapter board, as a member of a Mid-States Corporate Federal Credit Union committee, as a CUNA Mutual policy owner representative, as treasurer of Illinois CUES and as a CUNA board member, where he served as chairman of its Small Credit Union Task Force.
Chuck’s interest in serving as a member of the CUNA board was in the area of assisting small credit unions. At the time of his death, Chuck had just completed a report to the CUNA board listing 28 recommendations his committee developed to assist small credit unions. This report and the results derived from it will be a lasting tribute to a man that devoted much of his life to the credit union movement.
In addition to his many credit union activities, Chuck also volunteered his time to the Boy Scouts of America. Having achieved the level of Eagle Scout in his younger years, Chuck continued to work closely with the Boy Scouts throughout his adult years.
