The City Attorneys Responding in an Emergency (CARE) Unit consists of volunteer city attorneys from around the state who are willing to assist local city attorneys in responding to a catastrophic event by providing critical legal assistance to facilitate recovery. If you are interested in serving (or continuing to serve) as a member of this invaluable team, the TCAA Board asks that you complete this very brief survey by February 29. Contact Christy Drake-Adams at or 512-231-7400 with questions.

TCAA Wants to Support Your Regional/Local City Attorney Group!

Regional or local groups are a great way to meet and network with other city attorneys within close geographic proximity. These groups create opportunities to learn about legal issues facing cities and gain insight into solutions that can be applied across all city organizations. If you’re part of an established group looking for support, please consider applying to become a formal TCAA affiliate.

We can help:
• connect you with TCAA members in your geographic area;
• advertise your group’s key contacts, meetings, and events; and
• provide continuing legal education hosted by your group.

For more information or to apply, please click here. Contact Christy Drake-Adams at or 512.231.7400 with questions.
