COVID-related recovery programs and capital planning will be the focus of the Association of Town Finance Committees’ Spring Conference on Saturday, April 30, at Pine Ridge Golf Club in Oxford.

In the first educational session, MMA Senior Legislative Analyst Jackie Lavender Bird will discuss the American Rescue Plan and other COVID-related recovery programs.

The second session will highlight best practices in capital planning. Medfield Finance Committee Chair and ATFC Governing Board Member Jeremy Marsette will discuss his committee’s work to establish and implement a capital plan over the past several years. Kasey Bik from the Division of Local Services will offer guidance on developing a capital plan, focusing on three key areas: how to inventory, prioritize and pay for capital needs.

The conference will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with lunch served at noon. The cost is $25 for ATFC members and $35 for all other registrants. Click here for online registration.
