Texas league to send staff to disaster area soon
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (9/18/08)--Several members of the Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) team will begin visiting the areas affected by Hurricane Ike soon, said the league. "In the next day or so, we will build a plan on how to support our members and their membership and when we would begin venturing into the area without getting in the way," said Rick Grady, league vice president--marketing, public relations, and communications. Some league staff already live in the hurricane disaster area. League President/CEO Dick Ensweiler sent a message again to Texas credit unions Wednesday asking them to "open their heart" to help their colleagues (Use the link). As of Wednesday morning, more than 1.8 million customers were still without power while 825,000 customers have been restored to power, reported the three power utilities servicing the affected areas. The league also asked credit unions in the area to update their condition status. It uses the information to populate public sites and assist credit unions' members in gaining accurate information on credit union operations and the needs at specific locations.
