About Us

Welcome To The Metroplex Mayors Association

Local Leaders Working Together:

The Metroplex Mayors Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Its original dates to the mid-1980’s when Jack Harvard served as Mayor of the City of Plano, TX (1982 – 1990). Former Mayor Harvard, along with former Mayor Jack Evans (City of Dallas, TX), envisioned an opportunity to create a forum for Mayors to network and discuss ways to promote common interests. In 1984, the Metroplex Mayors Association was established. Mayor Harvard served as President from 1984 -1990. For approximately 37 years, the non-partisan association has continued to increase in its membership and influence in the region via inclusivity. Not only Mayors but City Managers, key City staff, and other organizations throughout the metroplex hold membership(s). Participating counties include Dallas, Collin, Denton, Rockwall, and Tarrant. The Town of Addison, because of its central location, has hosted the monthly meetings for over than 20 years, and continues to serve as liaison by providing administrative support and associated responsibilities. Monthly meetings cover an array of subject matter with guest speakers from local and state institutions.

What our Members Say

The Metroplex Mayors Association affords Mayors, City Managers, and stakeholders to meet about issues that impact our communities and the region. We are free to have open dialogue to share thoughts and ideas such as the challenges faced during the COVID-19 pandemic; budget talk; hear from agencies such as DART, RTC, and an array of topics from guest speakers. This association is an asset in so many ways, which attests to its longevity for over 35 plus years.
