The entire team of Everything Co-op wishes to express our deepest sorrow at the passing of Charles “Chuck” Snyder, President/CEO of National Cooperative Bank (NCB). Chuck was a Servant Leader, who made his transition on November 6. Our team is humbled to have been a part of his journey, and pleased to be able to create an opportunity for our previous guests to share their personal experiences of how Chuck impacted their lives or their organizations. Since we can not possibly know all the people who were most closely associated with Chuck, we have chosen to pay tribute to him through the lens of Everything Co-op.
Vernon is joined by staff from National Cooperative Bank (NCB), National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA), Cabot Creamery, 1Worker1Vote, and a host of personal friends and colleagues, to pay tribute to Chuck.
Chuck joined the National Cooperative Bank (NCB) in 1983, before being named as President and CEO in 1992. Throughout his professional career he remained an ardent supporter of cooperatives, and he is deeply loved and respected by the entire cooperative community.
Chuck was inducted into the Cooperative Hall of Fame in 2012, and received the Jerry Voorhis Award from the National Association of Housing Cooperatives for his long-standing commitment to affordable housing cooperatives. In 2017, he was the recipient of the Esther Peterson Consumer Service Award presented by the Consumer Federation of America for his commitment to consumer rights.
NCB has sponsored Everything Co-op since its inception more than eight years ago, and Chuck was instrumental in garnering that support. We have truly appreciated the support and guidance provided from NCB, and the Advisory Team he coordinated.
