Condon Retires—and Heads to the Classroom
During his career, Condon was responsible for many CUNA publications.
October 1, 2013
Mark Condon retired Sept. 30 as CUNA’s senior vice president of business & consumer publishing after more than 30 years at the trade association.
But he’s not really retiring; he’s just shifting gears.
“My immediate post-retirement plan is to pursue a master’s degree in history through Norwich University in Vermont,” Condon says. “It’s an 18-month program—and then I hope to teach.”
During his career, he was responsible for CUNA publications such as Credit Union Magazine, the Environmental Scan products, and various newsletters and websites.
He also oversaw CUNA’s personal finance and member-education products and publications.
Under his leadership, CUNA launched personal finance microsites, including Home & Family Finance Resource Center, Googolplex, Money Mix, and Anytime Adviser.
He was also instrumental in cultivating CUNA’s relationship with Coopera, a full-service Hispanic market-solutions company.
He previously headed up CUNA’s marketing department, overseeing the National Marketing Program.
Condon began his CUNA career in 1977 as a Credit Union Magazine editor after working as a reporter, sportswriter, and editor of community newspapers.
He frequently wrote chapters for the E-Scan, often focusing on the socioeconomic challenges of the middle class and how credit unions can better serve their members.
Condon writes and speaks regularly about credit union history—a passion he will take with him into his next career.

Growth Through Inclusion
Serving underbanked populations can both boost the bottom line and set up credit unions for long-term success.
Giving Back Is the Only Way
