Corpus Christi mayor signs CUs IYC proclamation
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (1/17/12)--Corpus Christi, Texas, Mayor Joe Adame Tuesday signed an International Year of Cooperatives (IYC)  proclamation presented by the Coastal Bend Chapter of Credit Unions, said the Texas Credit Union League.

"Corpus Christi residents now have a deeper understanding of credit unions a

d the value these financial cooperatives bring to their community," said the league in its newsletter (LoneStar Leaguer Jan. 13).

The mayor proclaimed the year 2012 as International Year of Cooperatives for the city

"Cooperative organizations, including the 22 credit unions that make up the Coastal Bend Chapter of Credit Unions, help build and sustain healthy communities by promoting jobs and enhancing the quality of life for those in our community; and they are an important economic force, employing 587 people; governed by more than 196,300 members; with total combined assets of nearly $2 billion," the proclamation noted.

The city's proclamation encourages "all citizens to recognize the many contributions credit unions have made to the communities in this state, both tangible and intangible, through the years, and express appreciation and support for the service and commitment of cooperative credit unions."

Events for the United Nations-designated IYC began officially worldwide last week, with the theme, "Cooperative Enterprises Build a Better World."

The Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) International Credit Union Day last October built on the cooperative theme. CUNA says it still has materials available. Use the link for more information.
