The Professional Bondsmen is proud to celebrate its 51st Annual Convention with members, nonmembers, sponsors, and vendors. The convention brings together bail bond professionals from across Texas for a fun and informative program to learn what is happening at the national level that could affect the Texas bail industry and what PBT is doing to keep our businesses open! The Convention Committee has planned outstanding social events to relax and enjoy networking and reconnecting with other bondsmen while forging new friendships.
