Continuing Education Units (CEU) can be earned in a number of ways during any calendar year (January 1 to December 31). One CEU is awarded for each 50 minutes of training. Please note that there are limits to the number of CEUs that can be earned in some categories of training.
CEUs can be earned by attending Texas Municipal League (TML) or TML affiliate educational events. Examples of these events are:
TML Annual Conference and Exhibition
TML-TAMCC Elected Officials' Conference
TML-TAMCC Newly Elected City Officials' Orientation
TML Small Cities' Problem-Solving Clinics
TML regional meetings
TML committee service
TML board service
TML affiliate conferences and workshops
TML or TML affiliate recorded training (up to 14 CEUs per year for recorded sessions)
If a CEU form is not provided on-site, you must submit a copy of the program to receive credit.
In addition to receiving CEUs for TML or TML affiliate events, you can earn CEUs for training offered by other organizations, with no more than 19 CEUs accepted from outside organizations. Examples of these events are:
Online training by outside organizations
Training offered by city-related organizations (councils of governments, National League of Cities events, etc.)
To receive CEUs for an event sponsored by another organization, you must provide a copy of the program for review. CEUs will not be awarded without TML approval.
To be considered for TMLI credit, the training you receive must be educational in nature, pertain to municipal leadership, and should enhance your service as an elected official. City council meetings, council briefings, council workshops, and community service are not considered training events for the purpose of earning CEUs.
