Who is a member?
Our members are the local governments of Massachusetts and their elected and appointed leadership.
The Massachusetts Municipal Management Association in June awarded scholarships from the Nancy Galkowski Legacy Fund to four local officials:
• Lexington Management Analyst Katharine Labrecque
• Holliston Town Administrator Travis Ahern
• Concord Administrative Manager Christopher Carmody
• Danvers HR Generalist Julianny Vittini
Labrecque will participate in the four-week MMA-Suffolk Municipal Finance Management Seminar this fall.
Ahern will join the International City/County Management Association, and Carmody will participate in the ICMA’s webinar series on effective supervisory principles.
Vittini will take the preparatory course for her Society for Human Resource Management certification.
Galkowski had a 35-year career in municipal management in Massachusetts and a passion for mentoring younger managers and being of service to her peers. Following her death in 2013, her Management Association colleagues established a fund to honor her memory and continue her legacy.
The fund accepts applications each spring.
