2020 Annual Conference

Announcement_no dateFor the first time ever, conference sessions will be scheduled live or made available for viewing from October 26-29, 2020.

The theme of this year’s conference is "Transforming Public Service." Today’s local government professionals are faced with situations requiring unparalleled creativity, heightened engagement, and outside-the-box solutions. Whether we lean on best practices or try something new, the foundation of public service (and MMASC) is a passion and commitment to developing people and communities. Resiliency is the name of the game in 2020 and everyone is looking at how they can transform to meet an unknown future.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in budget cuts, travel restrictions, bans on large gatherings and many unknowns. The 2020 Annual Conference will therefore be transformed into a virtual event in an attempt to keep our members, Partners and presenters safe while providing a flexible, affordable avenue for ongoing professional development during this unprecedented time. Mark your calendars for October 26-29, 2020 for an inspiring and educational conference
