The Association sponsors two educational conferences for members each year. The conferences are typically held over a three-day period, one in the spring and another in the fall, at a location in the state selected by the Board, with programs emphasizing issues of special interest to Tennessee Managers. Nationally prominent trainers and speakers are featured on the program along with regional leaders in local government management. A representative of ICMA regularly attends both conferences. A relaxed environment and thoughtful scheduling make the conferences useful opportunities to retreat from regular business activity, be engaged with 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.

The Annual Business meeting is held in conjunction with the Tennessee Municipal League (TML) Annual Conference in June. The TML has designated the Tennessee City Management Association an Affiliated Organization and representatives of the TCMA are active participants in policy-making by providing input and expertise on issues of importance affecting Tennessee cities and local governments. The TCMA President is a voting member on the TML Board of Directors. TCMA sponsors the Tennessee Reception each year at the ICMA Annual Conference. The TCMA also provides an electronic mail newsletter to its members every 2-3 weeks titled "TCMA NewsUpdate."  A directory of members is available online to members with employment and contact information. However, mailing lists are not made available for any purpose not specifically approved by the Board of Directors of the TCMA.
