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.

MMA Legislative staff will discuss the latest activity in the current legislative session, which has wide-ranging implications for cities and towns. Topics will include the recently passed fiscal 2024 state budget, cannabis regulations, zoning compliance guidelines for MBTA communities, a recently signed transportation bond bill, PFAS contamination, and more.

A light breakfast and coffee will be provided, followed by presentations and Q&A. Registrants will receive further details closer to the date of the event.
