TCUF sponsors April summit on asset building
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (4/3/08)--The Texas Credit Union Foundation (TCUF) is sponsoring an asset-building summit in Houston April 29-30 for those in the financial services industry. The event is being hosted by the Alliance for Economic Inclusion, RAISE Texas, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas (LoneStar Leaguer April 1). The summit will launch a series of initiatives--products, programs, legislation--to increase financial prosperity for low-income families in Texas. It is designed for credit union professionals, community organization leaders, government professionals, policymakers and others in financial services. “With REAL Solutions launching in Texas, it was natural that TCUF would sponsor an event such as this,” noted Jill Pharr, TCUF executive director. “Certainly, credit unions are at the forefront in reaching out to low-income individuals.” (See story, “Texas league adopts REAL Solutions” in News Now’s System section). Four action campaigns will be discussed at the summit, including matched savings accounts, community tax centers, alternative small-dollar consumer loan products, and home mortgage foreclosure prevention. When registering, attendees will be able to choose one action campaign to work on. The event will include plenary sessions, breakout sessions to discuss the campaigns, and invited speakers.
