Professional Bondsmen of Texas
2019 Annual Convention
October 9 - 11, 2019, San Antonio, Texas
It’s Time to Register for the PBT 49th Annual Convention
PBT is dedicated to raising professionalism through continuing education, public awareness, networking and legislative involvement. The Annual Convention brings together bail bond professionals and suppliers in a fun and informative atmosphere to discuss new ideas and form lasting relationships to support the bail bond industry. Join us in San Antonio to share your knowledge with your peers at our unique and entertaining social gatherings, through expert-led education, and engage with people who share your ideas and concerns in the bail bond industry.
The convention kicks off with the Opening Reception with the Exhibitors which gives you an opportunity to visit with friends, make new acquaintances and discover ways that can help our business. The program has been developed so you not only learn new and interesting ideas, but also gives you the opportunity to earn the required 8 hours of continuing education. And once again, the highlight of the convention is the Thursday night banquet and live auction.
And everyone looks forward to the Thursday night excitement! Not only will the dinner be delicious (and the margaritas cold), the Annual Awards will be presented and then the fun REALLY begins with the live auction.
We encourage everyone to bring an item to be auctioned as well as bid on items. Let’s face it, it takes money to fight to keep our bail industry alive and every dollar raised at the auction will go to the PBT Texas PAC (Political Action Committee) to assist our Legislative Committee so they can keep fighting Bail Reform.
And what better way to bring the Convention to a close than gathering all members together at the Annual Membership Luncheon and Meeting. This year’s elections include all officers and 7 board of director positions. Our members are the backbone of the association and this is YOUR opportunity to ask questions, hear plans for the next legislative session and decide who will guide PBT for the next 2 years.

BE A PART OF THE AUCTION
For those new to the convention, the live auction Thursday night to raise funds for the Texas Bail PAC is the highlight of the convention. Fabulous items are donated and won with laughter as “dessert”. We ask all members, exhibitors and sponsors to donate an item to be auctioned off. If you are unable to bring an item to the convention, you can send a check to PBT and the Convention Committee will purchase an item for you.
But to truly make this a success, we need YOU to attend and bid on the items. Call PBT Headquarters, 512-701-7313 for more information on the auction
