As part of President Bush’s National Small Business Week, which took place last week, Hood visited two Texas credit union service organizations active in helping credit unions assist small businesses. On April 12, Hood visited $567 million EECU and $1.5 billion Texans Credit Union, the largest producer of credit union member business loans in Texas, according to NCUA. Hood discussed how NCUA might facilitate communicating best practices to other credit unions as well as easing regulatory burdens currently in place.
