The MMMA Spring Conference is at capacity and registration is closed. Please email to be placed on the waitlist. No walk-ins will be accepted.

Join us for an exciting event featuring former Gov. Jane Swift, who will be our keynote speaker.

In 1990, at age 25, Swift was the youngest woman ever to be elected to the Massachusetts Senate, where she was instrumental in the passage of the Education Reform Act of 1993. She was elected lieutenant governor in 1998, and became acting governor three years later after the late Gov. Paul Cellucci resigned to become U.S. ambassador to Canada. Swift was the first woman to serve as governor in Massachusetts and was the first woman in U.S. history to give birth (to twins) while serving as governor.

Swift founded and currently serves as Board President of Cobble Hill Farm and Rescue Mission, a nonprofit animal rescue organization in Williamstown, Mass. This spring, she served as a Fellow at the Berry Institute on Politics at Salem State University.

The meeting will kick off with a member-led discussion on a podcast titled “Hurry Slowly” with Jenny O’Dell, the author of “How to Do Nothing.”

Registration is $25 per person.

All women working in appointed positions in local government are encouraged to attend.

Cancellation deadline for non-COVID-related cancellations: June 15.
