Today's newspapers are filled with headlines about the credit crisis, foreclosures and bank failures. The good news is, thanks to a healthy economy and low foreclosure rates, Texas seems to be the exception to the rule. In fact, many Texas banks are enjoying prosperity and growth. Some are even experiencing a record-breaking year. The national headlines and newscasts, however, can instill fear in your customers. As a result, the Texas Bankers Association has put together the following materials for you to use to reassure customers and the public at large about the safety and soundness of Texas banks. If you have any questions, please address them to Olivia Solis, vice president of marketing & communications, at 512-472-8388 or .
