The answer is yes and yes. It IS legal in Texas for you to tape record a conversation in which you are a participant. (Note it is not legal for you to secretly tape record a conversation in which you are not participating - like a phone tap.)

However, it is also legal for your employer to forbid such conduct or to ask you to leave the meeting.
