In May, the MMA will begin gathering updated information from municipalities for the 2021-2022 edition of the Massachusetts Municipal Directory, a comprehensive resource for connecting with colleagues.

Starting in early May, municipalities will begin receiving emails with a link, username and password that they can use to update their community’s information. Towns that have already had their spring election will receive the email in the first week of May, as will cities. Towns that have not yet had their spring elections will receive the email following their election.

In most cases, the email will go to the chief municipal official and a selected designee. They will be asked to review and update an online form, which is pre-populated with personnel information that the MMA currently has on file. The form should take only a few minutes to update and submit.

The MMA’s annual directory includes listings of local officials and contact information, as well as demographic and financial data, for all of the state’s 351 cities and towns. The guide also has 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 new edition of the directory will be published in September.
