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. If you have questions, please contact Evelyn Njuguna at email@example.com or 512.231.7400.
