Illinois Credit Union Hall of Fame
Larry Meyer was a true credit union pioneer. He served on the board of VAMCO Credit Union for almost 30 years, 10 of them as Chairman. During that time he always put the interests of the credit union and its members first. He rarely missed a meeting and always kept up to date on the latest service, product and technology trends relating to the financial industry.
Larry’s commitment to the credit union movement did not end with his service to VAMCO. He was a founder and charter member of Mid-States Corporate Federal Credit Union. He also served as a Director of the Illinois Credit Union League for almost 10 years and as an alternate director for the Credit Union National Association.
Larry brought a sense of purpose and professionalism to everything he did. His leadership touched many lives in Illinois and his dedication, loyalty and commitment to the credit union movement will always be remembered.
Several years ago, VAMCO Credit Union honored Larry by establishing an ICU Foundation perpetual scholarship in his name. In true Larry Meyer style, he downplayed this honor on his behalf and was more excited that this scholarship would provide assistance to a new generation of credit union leaders.
Sadly Larry Meyer passed away last year but we are honored to induct him into the Credit Union Hall of Fame posthumously.
