The Association sponsors two educational conferences for members each year. The conferences are typically held over a three-day period with one in the spring, typically in Middle Tennessee, and one in the fall, at a location selected by the Board.  Conference programs emphasize issues of special interest and importance to Tennessee city managers and assistants. Prominent speakers on local government management issues, as well as leadership and management topics, are featured.  A relaxed environment and thoughtful scheduling make the conferences useful opportunities to retreat from regular business activity, be engaged with other city managers who share similar concerns, and exchange ideas on local government issues.

Recent TCMA conferences have included sessions on such wide-ranging topics as leadership, performance management, federal and state regulatory matters, press relations, legislative updates, financial management, economic development, telecommunications issues, city council leadership, ethics, negotiation skills, roles of managers and assistants, identity theft, personnel management, and ICMA University Workshops.

An annual business meeting is held each year at a place and time established by the board, which historically has been the Tennessee Municipal League (TML) Annual Conference in June.  TCMA is designated as a TML Affiliated Organization and representatives of TCMA are active participants in policy-making by providing input and expertise on issues of importance to Tennessee cities and local governments. The TCMA President is a voting member on the TML Board of Directors. The Association also sponsors a reception each year at the ICMA Annual Conference and sends members an electronic newsletter every three weeks or so during the year with topical items of interest to members.
