Municipal Certification Program

TCAA’s Municipal Certification Program recognizes attorneys who demonstrate advanced knowledge and experience in municipal law. The program includes separate certifications for municipal prosecutors, municipal civil law attorneys, and office certifications.

The application fee is $50 for individual certification or $100 for office certification. The program is voluntary, and certification is not a State Bar of Texas Board of Legal Specialization certification. Recipients will receive a certificate suitable for display and be recognized before the TCAA membership.

Certifications are valid for a period of five years and will be recognized at the TCAA Summer Conference. The deadline to apply for a certification to be recognized at the 2022 Summer Conference on June 15-17, 2022 has passed. Applications submitted after April 29, 2022 will be recognized at the 2023 Summer Conference on June 14-16, 2023.

TCAA will review the applications and notify recipients if additional information is needed. For a copy of the guidelines and applications, please click on the appropriate link:
