TABC Seeking Advisory Committee Members

TABC is responsible for protecting the public safety and welfare through consistent and efficient enforcement of the Alcoholic Beverage Code and related rules. Section 5.21 of the Code authorizes the Commission to establish advisory committees it considers necessary to accomplish the purposes of the Code and the agency’s mission. In 2021, the Commission by rule established three advisory committees responsible for providing important technical knowledge and industry expertise that can provide the Commission and TABC staff real-world insight. The board members include licensees, representatives from regulated businesses and industries, public members and other professionals. Advisory board members are appointed by Chairman Kevin Lilly. There is no financial compensation for membership; however, members who are selected to serve enjoy great satisfaction in knowing the significance of their membership and their impact on the professions they serve. If you're interested in becoming a member of a TABC advisory committee, please submit a letter of interest by scanning the QR code at the bottom of this page or by clicking this link to our online form.

Important: TABC Public Inquiry Data Updates 

Data in TABC's Public Inquiry System has been updated to reflect license consolidation and new technology. Some businesses have reported discrepancies in the data and license status listed in the system. TABC is working to resolve these issues.  If there appears to be a discrepancy with a license status that may affect a wholesale/distribution or Local Distributor (LP) transaction, the business delivering the product can:  Accept from retail businesses proof of payment for their renewal and copy of their virtual summary screen from TABC's application system confirming that the retailer submitted a renewal application.  Accept from a retail business a copy of the renewed license or permit for that business (license that is not expired). Contact TABC’s Licensing division to verify the license status:  Email  Call 512-206-3360  If the business has a September 2021 expiration date, read the note below.  September and October Renewal Dates  To accommodate the transition to AIMS, all licenses and permits with September or October 2021 expiration dates are considered active and pending renewal by the agency until Oct. 31, 2021, even if the status field indicates otherwise in the TABC Public Inquiry System. This means that businesses with September or October 2021 expiration dates may continue to operate as normal and still accept wholesale/distribution or Local Distributor (LP) transactions, despite having an expired license date or status in Public Inquiry. Note for Local Governments and Others Verifying License Status While the TABC Public Inquiry System undergoes updates, you may use the same steps outlined above to verify a license or permit for any TABC-licensed business.   Originally published Sept. 2, 2021 Updated Sept. 30, 2021
