About the Riley Fletcher Basic Municipal Law Seminar

The Texas City Attorneys Association (TCAA) is proud to announce the Riley Fletcher Basic Municipal Law Seminar. The seminar honors Riley Fletcher, who was an attorney for 25 years with the Texas Municipal League. During much of his tenure, Mr. Fletcher was the one and only TML attorney handling dozens of questions from city officials each day. By the time he retired in 1987 at the age of 75, he was a part-time “Special Counsel,” but was still able to answer virtually any question about municipal law by reciting the appropriate statute or court case from memory.

Mr. Fletcher passed away on September 1, 1998. This seminar is our way of letting his memory live on. He was truly loved by Texas city officials and gained the respect, admiration, and affection of thousands of people.
