ARLINGTON, Texas – July 20, 2022 – Texas Governor Greg Abbott appointed Texas Trust Credit Union CEO Jim Minge Chairman of the Texas Credit Union Commission. Minge will serve in this capacity until December 31, 2023.
Minge, who is serving in a six-year term on the commission, will lead the nine-member panel that oversees the Texas Credit Union Department. The commission’s role is to ensure that the state’s 175 chartered credit unions function as a system.
