MACo January 2015 Winter Conference Session –General Assembly Session Forecast

MACo’s January 2015 Winter Conference is rapidly approaching and will take place from January 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, Maryland.  The theme of the conference 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.

One such session will focus on the issues to be discussed during the upcoming General Assembly Session, which starts on January 14, 2015.

Description: The beginning of a new term signifies change and new opportunities – but lawmakers will face several lingering challenges. Budget forecasts suggest limited opportunity for innovation and growth and many issues in public safety, environmental protection, education, and other areas continue to garner public and political attention. The General Assembly’s two presiding officers, an opposition party leader, and a policy advocate from the newly elected Administration will share their views on the issues confronting Annapolis for 2015 and beyond.
