TBA chapters are planned for the cities of Houston, Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio, and El Paso. The flagship chapter has been started in Houston. Once a TBA member joins, they have the benefit of participating in all statewide chapter activities, regardless of chapter, as they would in their home chapter. All chapters will operate in concert under the TBA brand and according to its guidelines, for the purposes of advancing the goals of TBA.
Although a Chapter is a part of TBA, it operates and functions separately from all other chapters, as the local needs of small businesses may be different in that locale. All members of a Chapter are required to be current members of TBA. All Chapter advisory board members and committee members are responsible for adhering to the guidelines of TBA at all times.
A Chapter’s source of operating income is the Chapter dues paid by participating members, revenue generated from events and program related income provided from TBA for that area. While any paid TBA member can participate in activities in each city, the same rules apply for membership and participation. Other sources of funding must be approved by the TBA Board of Directors.
Chapters are responsible for collecting their own revenue, separate from TBA membership dues, to support the Chapter. Most Chapter activities will be self-sustaining with each of its activities paying for itself.
