MACo Announces Session Tracks for 2011 Summer Conference

MACo is pleased to announce two exciting additions to our Summer Conference program—the Budget & Finance Session Track and the Land Use Session Track.

Each track is made up of four workshops planned to allow those conference attendees with a strong interest in either county budget and finance or land use issues to have a concentrated series of workshops that focus on either topic over the course of our conference.  Each series will be wrapped up with a discussion over breakfast on Saturday morning (August 20).

Participants will have the opportunity to review the workshops, debate key points, and discuss issues raised during the four sessions in their track while they enjoy breakfast with friends and colleagues.

This extra addition comes at no extra cost to you—simply register for the conference and plan to attend at least three of the four sessions in each track (listed below) and the Saturday breakfast.
