8:15 am – 2:00 pm

Due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus and out of an abundance of concern for the health of our members and staff, MMA is canceling the ATFC Spring Conference scheduled for May 9. At this time, we have not determined if this meeting will be rescheduled. We will keep you posted.

The Association of Town Finance Committees has partnered with the Division of Local Services for its first Spring Conference.

The day’s first workshop will focus on the mechanics of a Proposition 2½ override. John Gannon from the DLS’s Bureau of Municipal Finance Law will discuss the process for an override, and Arlington Finance Committee Chair Al Tosti will add his experience with override campaigns and how to rally community support.

DLS Deputy Bureau Chief Lisa Krzywicki and Technical Assistance Bureau Project Manager Jared Curtis will provide an overview of the DLS’s online services and demonstrate how attendees can access data and tailor reports for their community. Attendees are invited to bring their laptops and tablets so they can follow along.

In January, the DLS launched a municipal finance training and resource center, which includes videos and documents on a variety of municipal finance topics. This is in addition to the Municipal Databank and other online tools available to local officials.

The day will begin with a legislative update from MMA Senior Legislative Analyst Lisa Adams.

Registration and networking will begin at 8:15 a.m., and the program will begin at 9:15 a.m. Lunch will be provided at the close of the program.

A full agenda and registration will be available by early March. The registration fee is $20.
