In the run-up to its proposed consolidation with Georgia Corporate, Southwest Bridge Corporate FCU has announced a lineup of 10 Town Hall meetings across Texas in March. Two online meetings also are on the docket and, says Southwest Bridge, it will eventually hold a total of 26 Town Hall meetings in eight states over the next few months.
The purpose of the meetings is to review Southwest Bridge’s going-forward business plan with credit unions. In a statement, Dianne Addington, CEO of Southwest Bridge, said: “The proposed business plan is based on less capital, less risk and uninterrupted delivery of products and services to our member credit unions. Our goal for these meetings is to communicate why this business plan was selected, what the new corporate would look like, why it would carry less risk, and how much capital credit unions would need to invest. We want credit unions to understand the plan completely and get all their questions answered.”
Texas meetings are currently scheduled for Dallas/Fort Worth (March 7 and 8); Houston (March 9 and 10); San Antonio (March 15); Corpus Christi (March 16); Austin (March 24); El Paso (March 24); Midland-Odessa (March 28); and Amarillo (March 29).
Online Town Halls are slated for March 31 (6 to 8 pm) and April 1 (10 am to noon).
Additional Town Halls are scheduled for Little Rock, Ark. (March 31); Jacksonville, Fla. (March 28); Tampa, Fla. (March 29); Shreveport, La. (March 16); New Orleans (March 21); Baton Rouge (March 22); Roswell, N.M. (March 22); Albuquerque (March 23); Oklahoma City (March 17); Tulsa (March 18); Portland, Ore. (March 14); Eugene, Ore.
