BACKGROUND

 

The Texas Municipal League (“TML”) is a statewide membership organization that represents the interests of 1,161 Texas cities. TML’s purpose is to empower Texas cities to serve their citizens by providing support and a variety of services to city governments, including legal support, legislative advocacy, and facilitating dialogue and the exchange of information among Texas cities.

 

TML is governed by the TML Board of Directors, which is made up of elected and appointed city officials from across the state. The TML Board of Directors is comprised of a president, regional directors, affiliate directors, directors-at-large, and past presidents.  The City of Dallas has a permanent director-at-large seat on the Board.  TML requires that cities endorse their selected Board member through official City Council action.

 

The City of Dallas was one of the first 14 municipal members of TML, attending the first TML conference of cities in 1913, and the City continues to play an active role in TML’s activities. Having representation on the TML Board of Directors will allow the City to continue to play an influential role in this important organization.
