Not even a pandemic can stop the MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show, which will be held in January as it is every year.

Like our members have been doing for months now, we will be switching gears to host a dynamic, timely and engaging conference “virtually” on Jan. 21 and 22, 2021.

Using a highly interactive online platform, the Annual Meeting will retain its many popular features:
• A range of informative and timely workshops
• Compelling and inspiring speakers
• A general business meeting and important policy discussions
• A robust Trade Show featuring the latest services and solutions for cities and towns

There will also be creative networking opportunities – and fun!

For this year’s event, attendees will participate from their homes and offices, eliminating the need for travel and accommodations. And the two-day meeting will be held on a Thursday and Friday, rather than the typical Friday and Saturday.

The MMA is working hard to plan a high-energy and can’t-miss event. As always, program information about the 2021 MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show will be posted on this website as soon as it becomes available.

The 2021 event theme is “Leading Through Challenge and Change.”

The MMA Annual Meeting will continue to provide a forum for learning, networking, product and services information, and a celebration of the efforts and innovations in community governance.

Online registration will be available in October at Reservations will also be accepted for the Women Elected Municipal Officials Leadership Session, which will be held on Thursday, Jan. 21. The registration rate is $85 per person, and the WEMO event costs $15.

Only online registrations will be accepted this year. MMA staff are happy to help anyone who needs assistance. Attendees may use their unique username and password to register. Those who don’t have a username and password, or who have forgotten them, may email

MMA Partnership Program members qualify for member rates. All Partnership Program members must renew membership with payment by Jan. 1 in order to register for and attend the MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show. Partnership Program renewals or applications will not be accepted during the Annual Meeting.
