Russ Plunkett, President and CEO of Postal Credit Union (PCU) in Minnesota, has been inducted into the 2012 Credit Union House Hall of Leaders. Plunkett was among 13 credit union leaders honored by Credit Union House LLC at its annual meeting March 18 in Washington, D.C.
“The Credit Union House Hall of Leaders was introduced to provide lasting recognition for credit union leaders whose commitment has made a significant impact on the credit union movement at the local, state, or national level," said Charles Elliott, chairman of Credit Union House, LLC and president/CEO of the Mississippi Credit Union Association. “Being inducted to the Hall of Leaders is a high honor and has been an excellent way to acknowledge those who serve credit unions.”
In this fifth year of the Hall of Leaders program, there are now 55 inductees from 27 states recognized. Members of the Hall of Leaders have shown commitment that inspires others in the credit union movement. Inductees include board chairmen, league presidents, credit union CEOs, league board members, and volunteers. Their names remind all who visit Credit Union House of the many individuals who have volunteered their time to perpetuate the credit union movement and who demonstrate commitment to the values and mission on which credit unions were founded.
Plunkett is well-respected in the credit union movement and passionate about the mission of credit unions worldwide. Over the years, he has been influential in the development of the Minnesota credit union movement. As Chairman of the Minnesota Credit Union League, Russ led an effort to merge Minnesota’s two trade associations into one entity, which led to the creation of the Minnesota Credit Union Network (MNCUN).
In addition, throughout his 34-year credit union career, he has made it a priority to engage elected officials in conversations about credit unions and their positive impact on members and communities. For 10 years, he has been an active member of MNCUN’s Political Involvement Committee, participating in countless political events and activities. He is passionately involved in the political process and has dedicated time and resources to advocating for credit unions at the Minnesota State Capitol and on Capitol Hill.
