The Houston Chapter of Credit Unions hosted National Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Gigi Hyland at their recent September chapter meeting.

SPCO Credit Union President/CEO Tim Adams reported that Hyland detailed the efforts and coordination involved between the National Foundation and the Cornerstone Foundation, as well as Florida's League of Southern Credit Unions and Affiliates.

"It was a pleasure to have Ms. Hyland detail the mission of the National Credit Union Foundation," said Tim Adams, vice chairman of the Houston Chapter and President/CEO of SPCO Credit Union. "It was especially enlightening coming on the heels of Hurricane Harvey and the devastation it caused. We initially issued the invitation to Ms. Hyland in April, and she eagerly voiced her interest and commitment to speaking at our September Houston chapter meeting. The timing of her attendance could not have been more perfect, and I thank her on behalf of the directors of the Houston Chapter of Credit Unions."

Hyland, who works out of the Washington D.C. office, also discussed the importance of leveraging the credit union difference.
