Texas league launches young professionals initiative
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (2/9/12)--The Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) is launching the Texas 12, a new young credit union professional's initiative. 

The league is taking applications of credit union professionals under the age of 35 who are "creative, colorful, entrepreneurial, pioneering and plugged in, with a passion for making a difference," according to Linda Webb-Manon, the league's vice president of public relations & communications.

TCUL is collaborating with the Filene Research Institute on the initiative, which will mirror Filene's Cooperative Trust. The Coopertive Trust began as the "Crash Network," a group of young credit union professionals that encourages growth for, and change by, young credit union professionals.

The Texas 12 will hold its first meeting at the Texas league's annual meeting, April 17-20.

Online applications for the Texas 12 initiative will be accepted through Feb. 22.
