Texas league offers grants to attend Latino conference
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (5/13/08)--The Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) is offering grants for Texas credit union professionals and volunteers to attend the Fifth Latino Credit Union Conference June 11-13 in Dallas. The conference affords credit unions the opportunity to learn strategies and techniques for serving their unbanked and underserved markets (LoneStar Leaguer May 7). TCUL accepted grant applications for credit unions in need of financial assistance through last Friday. The grants are made available through the Richard Ensweiler Fund and must be used for the Latino Credit Union Conference. Ensweiler is president of the league. The theme for this year’s conference, “Latinos and Credit Unions: The Crossroads Where Mission Meets Opportunity,” seeks to highlight the potential that the Hispanic market holds for the credit union system. The U.S. Hispanic population increased 1.4 million to reach 45.5 million on July 1, 2007--or 15.1% of the estimated total U.S. population of 301.6 million. The conference is organized by the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions in collaboration with the Network of Latino Credit Union Professionals. TCUL is one of the sponsors.
