Board of Directors

The Texas Insurance Code Chapter 2210 outlines the composition and objectives of the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association’s Board of Directors. TWIA is governed by a Board of Directors appointed by the Commissioner of Insurance. Please visit the Texas Department of Insurance's website to learn about the application process.

The nine-member Board includes three public members residing in the first tier coastal counties and representing certain regions of the catastrophe area, three non-coastal representatives residing more than 100 miles from the coast, and three industry representatives actively writing and renewing windstorm and hail insurance in the first tier coastal counties. All Board members must have demonstrated experience in insurance, general business or actuarial principles sufficient to make the success of the Association probable. All Board members are unpaid volunteers.
