The Massachusetts Municipal Human Resources association invites members with five or fewer years of service to its seventh annual HR101 Bootcamp.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, the MMHR will not be hosting any in-person meetings for the remainder of the year, and all meetings will be held as Zoom webinars. The Bootcamp will be a five-session webinar series held weekly on Thursdays at 11 a.m., kicking off on Sept. 3.

The webinar series will cover core functions of the municipal HR office, including performance evaluation components and best practices, the hiring and termination processes, current trends in municipal and labor law, and benefits administration. The series will also feature an opportunity to ask a panel of seasoned HR experts about any aspect of municipal human resources during an “ask the experts” roundtable session.

The event is geared toward newer municipal human resources professionals, but veterans in the field are welcome to attend for a refresher course.

The registration fee is $50 for the entire series. We will not be able to offer registration and payment for individual sessions, you must purchase the entire series to attend. If you are unable to attend any of the sessions live, recordings and materials will be made available to all those who have registered and paid. On-demand recordings will only be made available to those who have registered and paid for the series. Upon registration, you will have the option to pay with a credit card or to have an invoice sent to your municipality.

The registration deadline is Wednesday, Sept. 2, at noon, in order to be able to attend any of the webinars in the series. All requests for cancellation must be received by email by Aug. 27 to receive a refund.
