The Texas Association of Business represents thousands of small and large businesses in Texas and hundreds of chambers of commerce.  The TAB has experts in Austin and Washington who are constantly watching out for your interests, making sure government regulations don’t put you out of business.  The team of TAB lobbyists works for you and has the kind of influence to get legislation passed that will help your business and get legislation killed that will hurt it.  Most of our members could never afford to hire a lobby team like TAB’s, but as a member, you don’t have to worry, because you have the power of what the Dallas Morning News called “the state’s premier lobby group for employers” behind you and your business.

The Lobby Team:

Our team specializes in the issues that make a difference to your business.

  • Health Insurance
  • Education
  • Workers Compensation
  • Lawsuit Reform
  • Improved Economic Development
  • Environmental Quality
  • Transportation
  • Taxation
  • Unemployment Insurance

Information You Need:

There’s no need for you to try to keep up with the ever-changing laws that affect your business.  As a TAB member you’ll receive all you need to fortify your business against the rules and regulations that can hurt your bottom line if you don’t have the right information.

Benefits You Need:

Membership in TAB also puts you on the winning team in the fight for qualified workers.  Today, more than ever, a business must have benefits to attract and keep quality employees.  TAB’s group benefits provide low-cost insurance and affinity programs for you and your employees.  Small businesses benefit most from these insurance programs, getting price breaks usually reserved for much larger corporations.

Promotion You Want:

As the largest representative of business in the state, TAB seminars and meetings are the best way to be heard, not just by the Legislature but by other businesses, clients, and customers.
