Volunteers’ Forum to Explore Financial Impacts of a Shifting Texas Population
Tuesday, April 30, 2013 4:20 AM

With a solid economy and an inviting nature, Texas is changing at a rapid rate, but it can be difficult to keep pace with these shifts. A recent projection on the future population of Texas and its surrounding states is predicted to have a heavy impact on the financial condition of those states.

During the 2013 Texas Credit Union League’s (TCUL) Volunteers’ Forum, Steve Murdoch, Ph.D., will present the General Session: “Is the Safety Net Strong Enough for the Human Cannonball of Changing Demographics?”

Murdoch, the founding director of the Hobby Center for the Study of Texas, will examine the projected population change for the tri-state area (Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma), including the differentials in patterns of growth across these states, the aging of the population, and the changing racial/ethnic composition of the population.

Additionally, Murdoch will explore the effects of such demographic changes on income, poverty, investments and other factors impacting the financial status of these states, as well as the implications of such patterns for the long-term future.

The 2013 Volunteers’ Forum takes place June 19-21 in San Antonio. For more information or to register, please visit
