Registration is open for the MMA’s six Fall Legislative Breakfast Meetings, which will be held in October.

Twice a year, the MMA hosts a series of meetings in communities across the state to give local leaders, area legislators, and MMA staff the opportunity to network, exchange information, and discuss issues of importance in state and local government in an informal setting.

The formal legislative session has ended for 2017-18, but the MMA is looking ahead to the start of the next session in January. Topics at the breakfast meetings will likely include state elections, economic development and housing, municipal recycling initiatives, and funding for the Chapter 90 local road program.

City and town officials from every community are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to talk about local successes and challenges and to give input on the MMA’s legislative priorities for the next two years.

A continental breakfast will be provided at 8 a.m. Introductions will begin at 8:15, followed by presentations and Q&A. The meetings will end by 10 a.m.

While meetings are free to attend, members are asked to pre-register online or by fax or mail.

Attendees are urged to contact their local legislators and invite them to attend as well.

Meetings will be held on the follow Fridays, from 8 to 10 a.m.:

October 12

October 19

October 26
