Texas CLASS in the Local Community

Texas CLASS was specifically created to service public-sector local governments throughout the state of Texas, giving them an opportunity to invest funds on a cooperative basis in short-term investments that are carefully chosen to yield favorable returns while striving to provide maximum safety and liquidity. Here at Texas CLASS, we are keenly aware of the unique needs of the many different entity types in the state of Texas. As such, Texas CLASS supports and sponsors several statewide organizations whose objectives strive to assist municipal finance officers in their day-to-day roles.

As of August 2019, Texas CLASS serves nearly 800 local governments of varying entity types; we understand that, as a finance professional, you are responsible for not only the financial operations of your entity but the development of your department and continual understanding of industry best practices. Below is a list of organizations that we feel provide tremendous value to local governments across the state. If you’re not already involved, click the links below to find out how to get started!
