The Massachusetts Municipal Councillors’ Association will hold a “lunch and learn” webinar on Tuesday, Sept. 14, titled “The Rules of Engagement: Promoting Civility and Productivity in Council Meetings.”

The free meeting will focus on how city and town councillors can have efficient and effective conversations among themselves and with the public during council meetings. The role of the council president will be addressed, as well as best practices for rules that govern behavior and the management of meetings.

The speakers will be Marlborough City Council President Michael Ossing and retired Franklin Town Administrator Jeff Nutting. Ossing is serving his 22nd year on the council. Nutting has more than 40 years of municipal management experience and has conducted more than 100 retreats and goal-setting sessions for select boards and city and town councils.

Waltham City Councillor and MMCA Board Member John McLaughlin will moderate the Zoom meeting, which will run from noon to 1 p.m.

All city and town councillors are invited. Click here for online registration.
