Mike's Message

Good-bye 2016 and hello 2017!
At Texas811 we care. We care about our members. We care about the excavation community. We care about our employees. We care about quality. We care about service. We care about damage prevention.
We care about public safety. As a non-profit organization, we are obligated to serve the public's interest. The public means all people. At Texas811 we are responsible for serving everyone, which is why we are committed to ensuring all know what's below. We want to protect your assets, your employees, your communities, your families.
The Texas811 Damage Prevention Summit was created because we care about our members getting access to the newest trends. And we care about excavators and locators learning about the best products and being up-to-date on what's going on in the world of damage prevention. Join us February 27 th through March 1 st for the 2017 Texas811 Damage Prevention Summit in San Marcos, TX. There will be a golf tournament, breakout sessions, a casino night, an exhibit hall, training workshops, and many giveaways and prizes. For more information please visit
We care about giving back. On April 21 st, Texas811 will host our 20 th Annual Charity Golf Tournament in Dallas, TX. Last year we were able to donate $20,000 to a local charity. We want to continue to be of service to those who are in need. Visit for more information or to register as a player or sponsor.
We care about giving our members the quality and accuracy they deserve. We are thrilled to have reached a milestone in membership growth last year. In September 2016 we reached the 1600-member mark and are proud to announce that we ended the year with 1625+ members.
We care about spreading the damage prevention and 811 messages to all Texans, in English and Spanish. We have a team of bi-lingual staff available 24-7. In September 2016, we surpassed our goal of a 25% increase in notifications in Spanish and have a lot of new ideas for continued growth in 2017.
We care about your time. In 2017 expect to see new additions to The Portal. There are already many features available to expedite your one-call experience and we want to continue to develop and implement additional features that will make The Portal even more efficient.
Until next time, thank you for trusting us for your damage prevention needs in Texas.
