LEON, GUANAJUATO, Mexico — When one credit union succeeds, the whole credit union movement succeeds. Such was the message delivered by Texas Credit Union League CEO Dick Ensweiler to an audience of approximately 500 credit union professionals and volunteers at the recent second annual meeting of Comacrep, the Mexican credit union movement's equivalent of the Credit Union National Association.

The theme of the two-day conference at the Hotel Fiesta Americana was "Joining Forces for the Economic and Social Development of Mexico." Mexico President Vicente Fox and President-Elect Felipe Calderon each voiced their support of credit unions earlier in the meeting.

Ensweiler commended credit union leaders on their ability to overcome negative perceptions about their strength and vitality, sway public perception, and influence lawmakers at the highest levels of government. He urged credit union professionals and volunteers in the audience to keep up the good work and continue telling the credit union message.
