The MMA will indeed hold its Annual Meeting & Trade Show in January 2021, but, due to coronavirus concerns, it will be a much different event.

Be sure to mark the dates in your calendar now for a “virtual” MMA Annual Meeting on Jan. 21 and 22, 2021.

Some key elements will remain as part of the program:
• A range of informative and timely workshops
• Compelling and inspiring speakers
• Business meetings and important policy discussions
• A Trade Show featuring the latest services and solutions for cities and towns

And there will be networking opportunities – and fun!

For this year’s virtual event, however, attendees will participate from their homes and offices. 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 the high-energy event that members are used to. As always, program information about the 2021 MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show will be posted on the MMA website as soon as it becomes available.

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

The MMA Annual Meeting is a forum for learning, networking, product and services information, and a celebration of the efforts and innovations in community governance. In addition to prominent speakers, workshops and the Trade Show, the two-day event features membership business meetings, awards programs and other activities.

Online registration will be available after Labor Day at www.mma.org/am-registration. Reservations will also be accepted for the Women Elected Municipal Officials Leadership Session, which will be held on Thursday, Jan. 21.

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 at the Annual Meeting.
