MMA members attend last year’s workshop for first-time Annual Meeting attendees.

The MMA will hold a special orientation session for first-time attendees of its Annual Meeting & Trade Show on Friday morning, Jan. 24.

The session will provide an opportunity to learn from seasoned MMA members about the best strategies for making the most of the Annual Meeting experience as well as MMA membership. They will discuss how to make the most of Annual Meeting workshops, the Trade Show, networking opportunities and more.

MMA members and staff will give a presentation on the history and value of MMA membership. A group of selectmen, councillors, mayors and town managers will explain how they take advantage of resources provided by the MMA, and they will connect the first-time attendees to appropriate MMA staff for more information.

The orientation will be held from 8 to 9 a.m. in the Hall C Foyer on the second floor of the Hynes Convention Center, with breakfast included.

If you are planning to attend the MMA Annual Meeting for the first time, or have any questions about the event or the first-time attendee session, contact MMA Senior Member Services Coordinator Denise Baker at dbaker@mma.org or 617-426-7272, ext. 105.
