Municipal Policies and ProceduresWebinarPublication Date: May 20, 2020

In response to the COVID-19 emergency, the Massachusetts Select Board Association’s Annual Leadership Conference has been restructured as a series of free webinars to be conducted over the coming months

The first of these webinars featured a discussion aimed at experienced select board members with KP Law managing attorney Lauren Goldberg. The discussion centered on common challenges faced by municipal government, including the open meeting and public records laws, social media use by public officials, record keeping, and conducting public hearings.

Goldberg gave a top-line overview of these issues and responded to questions on a range of topics, including how to comply with the open meeting law while conducting virtual meetings.
