TABC To Host Roundtable With DFW-Area Industry and Elected Leaders

AUSTIN – Local members of the alcoholic beverage industry and Texas Legislature will join leaders from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission at a roundtable discussion Oct. 6 in Grand Prairie.

The roundtable begins at 1:30 p.m. at the Grand Prairie Police Station’s Public Safety Building Community Room, 1525 Arkansas Lane. The event is an opportunity for TABC to engage with industry members and elected leaders on the topics affecting more than 57,000 businesses regulated by the agency. Those topics include new statutes affecting legal hours of alcohol sales, revised licensing fees, consolidation of alcohol permits and the recent launch of TABC’s new Alcohol Industry Management System.

“TABC relies on feedback from our elected leaders and the businesses we serve to successfully carry out our mission,” said TABC Executive Director Bentley Nettles. “The goal of these roundtables is to foster those important partnerships while identifying ways we can better serve our industry and the people of Texas.”

As the state’s sole alcohol regulator, TABC is charged with helping people obtain the necessary licenses or permits to do business while ensuring industry members comply with the laws put in place by the Texas Legislature.
