Mark your calendars for the return of the live, in-person MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show on Jan. 20 and 21, 2023.

The 44th annual event will be held at the Hynes Convention Center and Sheraton Hotel in Boston under the theme “Connect, Engage, Be Inspired.”

The MMA is continuing to develop the program, and updates will be posted on during the month of September. Registration will open on Oct. 3.

The MMA Annual Meeting, the largest regular gathering of municipal officials in the state, 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, receptions, awards programs and other activities.

The meeting will feature 18 timely workshops on topics such as federal funding, cybersecurity, fiscal issues, housing, labor law, cannabis, human resources and workplace issues, municipal law, policing, communications, PFAS and wellness.

The meeting will kick off with a special session to help first-time attendees get the most from the opportunity.

The last in-person MMA Annual Meeting, in January 2020, was attended by a record 1,300 local leaders, and the Trade Show featured more than 225 exhibitors. The 2021 and 2022 Annual Meetings were held virtually.

Companies, nonprofits and government agencies interested in exhibiting at the meeting can find details and contract information on the MMA website. For Trade Show and Partnership Program information, contact Karen LaPointe at 617-426-7272, ext. 154.
