Regional or local groups are a great way to meet and network with other city attorneys within close geographic proximity. These groups also create opportunities and time to learn about legal issues facing cities and gain insight into solutions that can be applied across all city organizations.
In an effort to support and promote regional and local groups, the TCAA board has approved a policy allowing such groups to formally partner with TCAA. If you’re an established group looking for support, please consider applying to become a TCAA affiliate.
Have questions or need additional information? Please contact Christy Drake-Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512.231.7400.
