Texas Trust Employee Training Day Benefits Mission Arlington

February 28th, 2017

ARLINGTON, Texas – February 28, 2017 – Employees of Texas Trust Credit Union spent President’s Day volunteering at the Mission Arlington charity organization. Nearly all of Texas Trust’s 260 employees took part in the President’s Day volunteer effort, which was part of the credit union’s annual all-employee training event.

This was Texas Trust’s fifth annual employee training event, which is held every President’s Day. Besides the large scale volunteer effort, Texas Trust employees assembled for an awards ceremony, the 2017 “state of the credit union” assessment, and enjoyed lunch together.

Employees were bused to Mission Arlington and divided into teams of 10. Each team worked in a different area within the Mission. Teams unloaded food trucks and restocked the food bank; sorted clothes for the community closet; organized supplies and materials for after-school programs; and relocated hundreds of Bibles and other books so the Mission can make repairs to the water-damaged library.

The faith-based Mission Arlington charity feeds, clothes, mentors, and nurtures the hearts and spirits of those in need. It is led by Tillie Burgin, an Arlington native and former missionary in South Korea. She launched Mission Arlington with the support of her church family at First Baptist Arlington in 1986.

“Your effort has helped us reset and put us in a good place to be able to better serve,” Burgin told Texas Trust’s employees. “We had been going backwards these last several weeks, but now our trucks have been unloaded and our shelves are full of food, clothing, and supplies.”

In addition to their time and effort, a number of Texas Trust employees also donated a personal day off back to the company, amounting to $8,220 that the credit union is giving to Mission Arlington.

February 15th, 2017

ARLINGTON, Texas – February 15, 2017 Qualtrust Credit Union of Las Colinas and Texas Trust Credit Union of Arlington announced their boards have agreed to unite.

The newly combined credit union will begin joint operations under the Texas Trust banner by the end of 2017, pending regulatory approval by the National Credit Union Association and the Texas Credit Union Department, and an affirmative vote by the Qualtrust membership.

Jim Minge & John DiChiaroThe uniting of Qualtrust and Texas Trust will broaden the geographic reach and the services available to members. On top of Texas Trust’s 17 locations, the combined credit union will have five additional branches in high growth markets in Flower Mound, Bedford, Las Colinas and San Angelo. The combined assets and membership will mean a greater economy of scale that can drive further growth.

From Qualtrust’s standpoint, it is investing in its members’ financial futures by delivering an expanded product line, services to meet the complete needs of its members, and broader career opportunities for its employees.

“After careful consideration, the boards and management teams of both credit unions collectively determined that we can achieve more together for our members than we can on our own,” said Jim Minge, president and CEO of Texas Trust Credit Union. “Together we can deliver greater value to our members, who are our number one priority.”

“Like Qualtrust, Texas Trust also shares a history of outstanding service and community involvement, which is important to our members,” said John DiChiaro, president of Qualtrust Credit Union. “Our members will benefit from more choices in products and services as well as being part of one of the most respected and top-performing credit unions in Texas.”

The combined credit union will have assets in excess of $1.2 billion and more than 105,000 members and 21 locations making it one of the largest credit unions in Texas and the U.S.

Qualtrust members will vote on the merger following regulatory approval.

TXTCU Delivers Financial Literacy Training to “Drone” Students

February 7th, 2017

Texas Trust Credit Union Delivers Financial Literacy Training to Unmanned Aircraft Systems Students

 

 Arlington, Texas – February 7, 2017 – The Arlington Chamber of Commerce Foundation has tapped Texas Trust Credit Union to provide financial literacy training as part of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) training.

 

The UAS, or drone, training is part of the Wagner-Peyser Unmanned Aircraft System Consortium (UASC) grant issued in conjunction with the Texas Workforce Commission. The Wagner-Peyser project was established to lead Texas in building the future unmanned aviation industry workforce. The grant is being used to establish capabilities and certification for two- and four-year higher education programs that will prepare Texans for jobs in the industry.

UAS StudentsMore than 30 students, ages 18 to 24, from Tarrant County College, the University of Texas at Arlington, and the University of North Texas Denton participated in the UAS training. Texas Trust provided the required 20 hours of financial education instruction at the Tarrant County College Erma C. Johnson Northwest Center of Excellence for Aviation, Transportation and Logistics (CEATL).

 

That instruction covers everything from basic money management to specifics about managing credit, including payment cards and personal loans, as well as investing and financial considerations involved in starting a business.

 

“There is a huge gap in financial literacy among college students,” said Karen Austin, Senior Director of Education and Workforce Development and Wagner-Peyser Project Director of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “Since the UAS training is a demonstration program, we wanted to incorporate financial education with it to help students better prepare for life after graduation. Texas Trust was gracious in joining us as a community partner.”

 

Austin added, “While many students have hopes of turning their interest in drones into a career, they are entering an emerging industry with evolving changes. Texas Trust provided the expertise to show students the importance of a budget and practical ways to use credit to help minimize debt in their personal life and in business.”
