Due to an increasing number of people being diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus and out of an abundance of concern for the health of our members and staff, MMA is canceling the MMCA Statewide Spring Dinner scheduled for Wednesday, March 11, from 6 to 9 pm. At this time, we have not determined if this meeting will be rescheduled. We will keep you posted.

Budget season is underway in cities and towns. Join your colleagues from around the state for a review of the budget process, with tips and guidance from Framingham Chief Operating Officer Thatcher W. Kezer III.

The meeting will include time for networking and a legislative update from MMA Legislative Director John Robertson. Dinner will be served.
