TCAA City Attorneys Responding in an Emergency (CARE) Unit Survey

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 has asked that you complete a very brief survey by November 30. Contact Heather Lockhart with the Texas Municipal League at 512-231-7400 with any questions.
