Gov. Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito will be special guest speakers at the annual Municipal Conference co-sponsored by the Division of Local Services and the Massachusetts Association of Regional Planning Agencies on Sept. 29 in Worcester.

Additional special guests will include Transportation Secretary Jamey Tesler, Labor and Workforce Development Secretary Rosalin Acosta, Housing and Economic Development Secretary Mike Kennealy, Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Beth Card, and Steve Kadish, the governor’s former chief of staff and now a senior fellow at the Harvard Taubman Center.

The conference, “Building the Foundation for Our Future: Equitable Infrastructure Modernization in Massachusetts,” will cover how to make the most of unprecedented infrastructure modernization resources.

Polito will speak in the morning, followed by a panel discussion with senior administration officials highlighting some of the generational infrastructure funding opportunities currently available.

Afternoon workshops led by senior administration officials and local leaders from across the Commonwealth will provide the chance to dive deeper into these funding opportunities, think through the challenges facing your community, and hear from other communities looking to work through those same challenges. Workshops will include “Building the Municipal Workforce Pipeline,” “Early Education,” “Broadband,” and “Stimulating Local Economies with Infrastructure Improvements.”

The conference will be held at the College of the Holy Cross Campus Center from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost is $30. Click here to register.
