Richmond office to close July 31

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission will permanently close its Richmond office July 31 to ensure efficient use of state resources as the agency begins offering faster service to businesses online. While TABC will no longer offer in-person services at this office, staff will still be available by phone and email. Members of TABC’s Licensing and Audit teams will continue assisting the community, and agents will continue to conduct inspections and operations in the area. The decision to close the location came after re-evaluation of the agency’s office leases statewide. TABC constantly works to identify areas where it can improve its stewardship of state resources. The closures will build on the successful transition many businesses made during the COVID-19 pandemic to work with TABC online and by phone rather than with paper forms and in-person meetings. The agency also moved many services online with the launch of the Alcohol Industry Management System (AIMS) in 2021. Learn more about AIMS.

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. If you have any questions about the application process, please contact TABC’s Human Resources Division at TABCHR@tabc.texas.gov.
