Our Story

Since the beginning, InvesTex Credit Union (formerly Aldine Teachers Credit Union) has grown and expanded our field of membership.  As we look forward to a new chapter in Credit Union history, we look back fondly on the past.  In the fall of 1952, Aldine Teachers Credit Union was formed by a small group with a vision to meet the needs of the employees and immediate family members of Aldine Independent School District in Houston, Texas.  By the end of 1953, the Credit Union had over $5,000 in assets; a substantial amount in those days.  Membership had grown to 89 members and 73 loans had already been issued.
