The various professional disciplines in city government are represented in the League through affiliate groups sometimes referred to as departments. There are 21 organizations officially affiliated with Texas Municipal League (TML).

Each affiliate has a representative on the TML Board. The term of office for the affiliate representative is two years with a maximum of four years for any one person.

To retain affiliate status, each affiliate must fully comply with a set of TML Board-approved Guidelines.


TML offers a variety of services to aid its affiliate groups including:

  • Membership communications and billing
  • Financial management
  • Conference and workshop management
  • Board and committee support

Each affiliate group has its own membership criteria and dues structure that is separate from TML.


For information on joining one of the following affiliate groups, including membership requirements, dues, and benefits, please email the TML Affiliate Services Department.
