Rep Castro To Address Texas League Conference
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (3/26/13)--U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) will address more than 500 credit union executives at the Texas Credit Union League's Texas Governmental Affairs Conference and Member Meeting and Expo, which meets April 2-5 in Austin.

A long-time credit union member, Castro served five terms in the state legislature before being elected in 2012 to the U.S. Congress, representing District 20.

"Rep. Castro is considered by many to be a rising star of the Democratic Party, and we are delighted he is taking time out of his busy schedule to share his perspectives and insights at this very important gathering of credit union leaders," said league President/CEO Dick Ensweiler.

The conference, which combines the GAC and the Members Meeting and Expo for the first time, will feature a business meeting, an exhibit hall, networking opportunities and educational sessions exploring key issues impacting the financial marketplace. Attendees also will meet with elected officials at the Capitol.

"The sheer volume of credit union leaders who attend this conference each year illustrates the level of cooperativeness that exists between credit unions. In the end, it is the members who benefit most from this collaborative sharing of ideas and resources," Ensweiler said.

This year's sponsors include CUNA Mutual Group, Catalyst Corporate FCU, Pulse, CO-OP Financial Services, Credit Union Resources Inc. and the Texas Credit Union Foundation.
