I am sure you will enjoy the many benefits the Division has to offer. One major benefit is our website (TXPD.org). We suggest you take time to visit the site and familiarize yourself with the resources there. You’ll find lots of links to explore, including links for upcoming events (menu: CLE/EVENTS), how to update your address/email address/phone numbers (menu: MEMBERSHIP > Address Change), and articles on Ethics (menu: ETHICS), just to name a few. A list of other membership benefits can be found here (menu: MEMBERSHIP > Benefits).
