MACo’s Wcover-draft-apple-and-icons-3inter Conference is December 7-9, 2016 and it’s better than ever. An expanded exhibit hall, more content on Wednesday, and deeper opportunities to connect with Maryland’s government decision-makers make this a can’t-miss event.


The theme will focus on how counties can prepare to best serve and protect their residents across many different areas of county service – from budgeting to infrastructure to emergency management, there will be something here for everyone!
