TCAA CARE Unit – Volunteer Today!
In the wake of recent disasters that have hit Texas, the Texas City Attorneys Association board of directors has created the “City Attorneys Responding in an Emergency (CARE) Unit.”
The CARE Unit will be a list of municipal lawyers who are willing to volunteer their time and knowledge to assist a city’s attorney who is facing disaster response and recovery. It will be coordinated by the general counsel of the Texas Municipal League/Texas City Attorneys Association.
Volunteers would usually be called on to provide advice over the phone or in person to a city attorney in their region who needs assistance. In addition, the TCAA board of directors has allocated funds to cover actual expenditures of volunteers if that becomes necessary.
To be on the list to provide assistance in the event that a city in your area needs legal help in an emergency, please email the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- City or Firm
- Email address
- Cell phone number
