Your Voice Matters: Join Us in Lubbock, McAllen, Dallas, Houston & Austin

Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) will hold regional, face-to-face strategic planning sessions around the state during March 2014. These open, interactive sessions will help shape our vision and chart the course for TDLR’s future. This is your opportunity to let us hear your ideas with no filters. Your voice matters, and TDLR wants your input concerning these four key questions:

  • What are we doing well?
  • What can we do better?
  • What changes would you make to TDLR if you were king or queen for a day?
  • Over the next five years, what major changes will affect the way you do business and the services we provide?

Please consider this your invitation to join us in person to discuss the issues most important to you. Regional sessions will take place on the following dates:

  • Email us your ideas and comments now at and we’ll include them in the discussion.
  • Jump into the conversation taking place on TDLR's Facebook and Twitter pages. We’ll be posting specific questions each week from our strategic planning sessions and including your responses in our research.

Ideas, comments, and suggestions collected during our strategic planning sessions have a real-world impact. In recent years, we’ve made policy and rule changes based on feedback from strategic planning sessions, and we share this feedback with lawmakers each legislative session. One good idea can create real change for Texans.
