Why Join TAB

You probably have some questions about why you should join TAB. What are the benefits, and how will it help my business grow? Here are some answers for you.

  • Record of State Success: For most of you the resources aren't there to track thousands of pieces of legislation, know when and where to testify and to meet with all of the members of the legislature. That's where the most powerful business lobby in the state comes in. The Texas Association of Business is well respected at the Capitol and knows how to represent your interests before the legislature. No organization is better at tracking, testifying and fighting for legislation that will help the business climate in Texas, or killing legislation that will hurt it. Don't take our word for it. The Texas Tribune called the TAB "the most powerful conservative business lobby," and Texas Monthly named TAB President and CEO Bill Hammond one of the 25 most powerful Texans. That's the kind of team you want on your side.
  • Washington Representation: It also takes resources to represent the interests of Texas businesses in Washington DC. Being a member of the Texas Association of Business brings that expertise to you as well. We have a lobbyist in Washington that is constantly tracking legislation that will effect the business climate and working for and against that legislation. The launch of the TAB's Texas Center for Federal Policy also means that you will be part of the solution to long term problems like the debt, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
  • Helping Your Bottom Line: Wouldn't it be great if you could save over $2300.00 per employee in direct and indirect costs. That's the savings TAB has helped you recognize because of its lobbying and grassroots campaigns on behalf of Texas businesses. Your bottom line also benefits from health care savings and special purchasing power on things like shipping. TAB also provides members with access to personal consulting from issue experts that can save your company thousands of dollars in potential fines and litigation. Discounted health and life insurance for small companies provides even greater value for your membership dollars.
