The Texas Association of Black City Council Members, Inc. (TABCCM), is a membership organization formed to provide a forum for black local elected officials and the community. The primary purpose is to assist in the empowerment of black local elected officials and their constituencies. The association will carry out its purpose by facilitating opportunities for education, sharing ideas and knowledge, and advocating the economic betterment of the communities where its members serve.
We believe that education and sharing information will enhance the community and the membership’s overall contribution to the science and practice of public policy in their individual communities.
To Identify and Mentor “Rising” Leadership. We serve as a clearinghouse for access to information about public policy and legislative issues affecting the membership and Texas cities.
