The MMA’s 2020-2021 Massachusetts Municipal Directory, a comprehensive resource for municipal data and for connecting with colleagues, is scheduled to be published this fall as an online PDF.

The MMA has adopted the new electronic format for the first time this year due to the COVID-19 emergency. The directory is being 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 will include 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 MMA greatly appreciates the help of local officials across the state who have used the MMA’s online tool to update the information for their communities over the past couple of months. Officials who haven’t updated their communities’ profiles may do so until Sept. 9, or can email for help.

When published, the directory will be made available online as a password-protected PDF to members and others who receive the publication. The MMA will send 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.
