Who is a member?
Our members are the local governments of Massachusetts and their elected and appointed leadership.
Registration is now open for the MMA’s spring series of Legislative Breakfast Meetings, which will be held on March 17 and March 24.
Each year, the MMA hosts a series of meetings in communities across the Commonwealth to give local leaders, legislators and MMA staff the opportunity to network in an informal setting and learn about and discuss issues of importance at the local and state level.
The spring series of breakfasts will take place as legislative priorities begin to take shape for the new session, and as the Legislature begins to formulate its fiscal 2024 state budget plan.
Discussions will also be centered on the many bills that continue to be on the MMA’s radar for the new session, including a proposed municipal and public safety building authority, a permanent option for remote meetings, and more.
Other topics of interest will include the new administration’s immediate needs bond bill and Chapter 90 bond bill.
Municipal officials from every community are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to discuss issues of importance with MMA staff and legislators. Attendees are also urged to contact their local legislators and invite them to attend.
A light breakfast and coffee will be provided at 8:30 a.m. Introductions will begin shortly thereafter, followed by presentations and a Q&A session. The meetings will end by 10:30 a.m.
Meetings will be held on the following Fridays:
Fairhaven: Council on Aging building; 229 Huttleston Ave., Fairhaven
Tyngsborough: Old Town Hall, 10 Kendall Road, Tyngsborough
Adams: Adams Free Library, 92 Park St., Adams
Westfield: Reed Institute, Mestek Inc. building, 260 North Elm St., Westfield
Location details will be available soon.
Meetings are free to attend. Members are asked to pre-register online.
The MMA is advising in-person meeting attendees to keep up with the latest COVID vaccines for which they are eligible. We highly recommend that attendees take an at-home rapid antigen test prior to attending, and not attend if they have any COVID symptoms or if a household member has tested positive for COVID. These protocols are subject to change based on the latest public health data and guidance.
