Registration is now open for the MMA’s fall series of Legislative Breakfast Meetings, which will be held on Oct. 6 and 13 in locations around the state.

Each year, the MMA hosts a series of meetings in communities across the Commonwealth to give local leaders, legislators and MMA staff the opportunity to network in an informal setting and learn about and discuss issues of importance at the local and state level.

MMA Legislative staff will discuss the latest activity in the current legislative session, which has wide-ranging implications for cities and towns. Topics will include the recently passed fiscal 2024 state budget, cannabis regulations, zoning compliance guidelines for MBTA communities, a recently signed transportation bond bill, PFAS contamination, and more.

City and town officials from every community are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to discuss issues of importance with MMA staff and legislators. Attendees are also urged to contact their local legislators and invite them to attend as well.

The meetings will be held in the following locations:
Oct. 6, 8:30-10:15 a.m.
Sterling: 1835 Town Hall, great hall, 2nd floor, 31 Main St.
Waltham: Stonehurst, the Robert Treat Paine Estate, 100 Robert Treat Paine Drive

Becket: 557 Main St., community room, lower level (8:30-10:15 a.m.)
