About the William King Cole Series

This nationally respected educational program—named posthumously in honor of William “King” Cole, a respected friend to TCMA and former Texas city manager—focuses on knowledge, commitment, and ethics in the spirit of “King.”

Session I of the William “King” Cole Series introduces the fundamentals of city management—the basic core duties and responsibilities of today’s city management profession—and Session II continues to build on this foundation by presenting different educational modules to complement what was learned previously. Both sessions feature comprehensive discussion, top-notch instruction, and ample networking opportunities.
