Baltimore Raven To Share Co-op Spirit At Federation Confab
NEW YORK (5/9/13)--Saying the cooperative spirit is what has made a real difference in his life, Baltimore Raven Michael Oher, who was the inspiration for the Academy Award-winning movie "The Blind Side," will appear at the annual National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions conference, June 5-8 in Baltimore.

"The federation's annual conference is a great opportunity for me to meet the people who are committed to bettering lives through community development credit unions," Oher said.

The event will be the nation's largest gathering of credit unions dedicated to community development, the federation said. It will offer strategies, ideas, partnership opportunities and practical solutions for connecting low- and moderate-income Americans to high-quality financial services.   

"Mr. Oher has such an uplifting story to share about perseverance and commitment," said federation President/CEO Cathie Mahon. "His life experience will resonate deeply with conference attendees and energize their commitment to serving their communities nationwide."  

The federation represents more than 250 community development credit unions that serve more than 2.2 million residents of low-income urban, rural and reservation-based communities nationwide.
