On this episode of The Bail Post, we reach several milestones. First, this is episode number 50. Second this is the start of Season 3 of the Bail Post.
On Season 1, the first episode focused on what bondsmen do. On Season 2, the first episode highlighted why the private industry was so much more successful than any other release mechanism.
For Season 3, the first episode focuses on what it is that PBT does for the bondsmen of Texas. Our guest is the new president of PBT, Irma Montemayor. She talks about what it takes to run one of the best and most effective bail associations in the United States. She also highlights the work that PBT engages in at the Texas Legislature.
There is also a discussion regarding how PBT raises funds to be able to be active at the legislature. Ms. Montemayor highlights the importance of PBT's continuing education class.
Also, there was a discussion regarding the partnerships that PBT enters into with surety companies to provide additional funds to defend the bail industry to get their story out. The current partners include: AIA, American Surety, Bankers, Financial Casualty & Surety, and Lexington National. Ms. Montemayor challenged agents of sureties not on this list to contact their insurance company to find out why they were not partnering with PBT to defend their businesses.
Join us on The Bail Post as we start Season 3.
