About Texas Municipal League
The League exists solely to provide services to Texas cities.

Indeed, the TML Constitution states that the purpose of the League is "to render services which individual cities have neither time, money nor strength to do alone." In practice, that mission translates into the following services:
1. To represent the interests of member cities before legislative, administrative, and judicial bodies at the state and federal levels.
2. To sponsor and conduct an annual conference and other conferences, seminars, meetings, and workshops for the purpose of studying municipal issues and exchanging information regarding municipal government.
3. To provide administrative services to the Texas Municipal League risk pools so that quality coverages at reasonable and competitive prices can be made available to member cities and their employees.
4. To publish and circulate an official magazine and other publications, reports, and newsletters of interest to member cities.
5. To serve as a repository of literature, analyses, resear...ch, and data related to municipal operations and make that information available to member cities.
6. To alert member cities of important governmental or private sector actions or proposed actions which may affect municipal operations.
7. To promote the interests of League affiliates (departments) and regions by providing organizational and technical assistance as directed by the Board and consistent with financial resources.
8. To promote constructive and cooperative relationships among cities and between the League and other levels of government, councils of governments, the National League of Cities, educational institutions, and the private sector.
9. To provide for and conduct training in relevant and timely topics related to municipal government.
10. To provide, in a timely manner, any additional services or information which individual members may request, consistent with the member cities' common interests and the League's resources.
