The MMA Board of Directors is installed during the association’s Annual Business Meeting, held each January.

The voting directors are selected by the following MMA organizations:

  • Massachusetts Mayors’ Association (MMaA)
  • Massachusetts Municipal Management Association (MMMA)
  • Massachusetts Select Board Association (MSA)
  • Massachusetts Municipal Councillors’ Association (MMCA)
  • Association of Town Finance Committees (ATFC)

The most immediate MMA past president still holding local office is an ex-officio member of the board. The MMA executive director is a non-voting, ex-officio member of the board.

The MMA Board of Directors holds eight regular meetings per year in Boston, followed by a regular meeting of the Local Government Advisory Commission with the governor. The board also holds an annual retreat meeting. For information on the board’s activities, contact the executive director’s office at the MMA.
