The MMA’s 2020-2021 Massachusetts Municipal Directory was published on Dec. 21 and is available online as an easy-to-use pdf.

The MMA adopted the new electronic format for the first time this year due to the COVID-19 emergency. The directory was published later than usual in order to provide the most up-to-date information from the many postponed municipal elections this year.

This year’s directory includes all of the customary information, including contact information for local officials, and demographic and financial data for each of the state’s cities and towns. There are also sections devoted to regional school districts, state and federal government agencies, and relevant professional organizations, as well as a guide to products and services for municipalities.

The directory is available online as a password-protected PDF to members and others who receive the publication. The MMA has sent emails with login information and instructions for accessing the document.

The directory is included in the subscription to the Municipal Advocate and is automatically made available to Advocate and Beacon recipients. For members, MMA dues cover the cost of that subscription. Others interested in the Massachusetts Municipal Directory may visit to purchase online access.

Those who might be experiencing difficulty accessing their copy of the directory, or who believe they should have received a login email but haven’t, should email for assistance.

The MMA greatly appreciates the help of local officials across the state who used the MMA’s online tool to update their communities’ profiles for this year’s directory.
