Your Voice Matters

We value your input and look forward to hearing from you. During each session participants will be asked to respond to the following questions about TDLR:

  • What are we doing well?
  • If you were king or queen for a day, what changes would you make to TDLR’s laws, rules, or processes?
  • During the next five years, what major changes do you expect in your profession or industry, and in the state of Texas?
  • What changes should we make to prepare for the next catastrophic event, such as Hurricane Harvey?

Ideas and suggestions from strategic planning sessions make a difference. We make process improvement and rule changes based on your feedback, and we share your feedback with state lawmakers. Your ideas can create real change for Texas.

TDLR’s 2018 Strategic Planning Sessions will be held in five cities on the dates listed below.
