MACo’s Winter Conference will be held January 7-9, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Hotel in Cambridge, MD. The conference theme is “The Road Ahead” and will focus on local government legislative priorities for the upcoming General Assembly Session, integrating newly elected officials, and building relationships with new legislators and the new Administration.
Educational sessions will provide a mix of topics from overviews on county government fundamentals to more advanced policy issues and strategic planning on MACo’s legislative initiatives. Special programming will be provided for newly elected officials.
Every four years, following an election, MACo offers a “Newly Elected Officials Orientation” which helps immerse new elected officials in local government, the role of MACo, the legislative process, and educational options such as the Academy for Excellence in Local Governance.
More details will be announced soon, but for now, please save the date of MACo’s Winter Conference: January 7-9, 2015.
