New TCAA-Affiliates

TCAA is excited to announce that both the North Texas Municipal Attorneys (NTMA) and the Capital Area Municipal Lawyers Association (CAMLA) have been approved as TCAA-affiliated groups! Details about each group are available here.

Regional attorney 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.

For more information about the North Texas Municipal Attorneys, please email Leann Guzman, NTMA President, at

For more information about the Capital Area Municipal Lawyers Association, please email Cristian Rosas-Grillet, CAMLA President, at
