2025 and 2026 Annual Conference Request for Bids

The Texas City Management Association is accepting bids for the 2025 and 2026 TCMA Annual Conferences. TCMA invites your city to submit a bid to act as the host city for the conference.

If your city desires to submit a bid to serve as the host city for the 2025 or 2026 TCMA Annual Conference, please submit your proposal no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. The bid packets and additional documents are available below. If you would like to submit a bid for both years, a separate packet is required for each year.

The proposal should: (1) address whether each of the criteria within the host city packet can be met; (2) include the sleeping room rate range (both single and double); and (3) include an indication from the prospective host city manager’s office of the city’s willingness to provide both direct and in-kind support. 

The TCMA Professional Development Committee will review the submitted bids. The Committee will make a recommendation to the TCMA Board and cities bidding will be notified no later than April 29, 2022.

All questions are to be submitted by email to tcmaconference@tml.org. Responses will be posted on the TCMA Questions & Answers page. Questions by phone call will not be accepted. Questions from employees at property venues will not be accepted. All questions should filter through a designated individual of the city manager.

TCMA welcomes your interest and looks forward to receiving your bid.
