The Massachusetts Select Board Association will discuss legal and policy implications of virtual and hybrid public meetings during its Annual Business Meeting, to be held remotely via Zoom on Jan. 28 from noon to 1 p.m.
The MSA Business Meeting is typically held during the MMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show, but it needed to be rescheduled this year when most Annual Meeting events were transitioned to a virtual format.
MSA President and Winchester Select Board Member Michael Bettencourt will give opening remarks, followed by a report from the MSA Nominating Committee and a vote on the MSA officers for 2022.
Lauren Goldberg, managing partner at KP Law, will give a presentation on the future of virtual and hybrid public meetings. For many municipal boards and committees, virtual and hybrid meetings have become a standard method of conducting business. Goldberg will discuss the legal and policy implications of these types of meetings and what municipal officials can expect going forward.
All members of select boards in Massachusetts are considered members of the MSA and are invited to attend the MSA Annual Business Meeting. Attendance at the meeting is limited to MSA members. The Zoom link is being emailed to all select board members in Massachusetts.
