FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (1/25/08)--The Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) is seeking success stories to help position credit unions as responsible partners helping with the U.S. economic stimulus. TCUL hopes to favorably position credit unions in the minds of consumers, the media, public opinion-makers and lawmakers as part of its advocacy efforts (LoneStar Leaguer
Jan. 24). The league seeks stories about members stuck in bad loans who were able to refinance with more favorable terms and conditions through the credit union. Other stories being sought include: a member struggling with a loan payment--auto, mortgage, signature--who prevented a default by working with a credit union; or a credit union that offers member business loans and helped a small community business obtain capital when no other lender would. Texas credit unions can e-mail their members’ stories to firstname.lastname@example.org
