MACo’s Winter Conference, “Charting the Course,” will take place on January 2-4, 2019. Interested speakers should submit proposals (using the proposal outline) by September 21, 2018).
MACo’s Winter Conference will focus on the path ahead following the election, as new and returning officials convene to discuss the upcoming legislative session. Approximately 600 attendees are expected to attend the three-day conference.
With a heavy focus on county governance issues for new officials, topics will include overviews of budgeting, consensus-building, leadership, the Public Information Act and Open Meetings Act. Attendees will also be able to take a deeper look at some of the current hot policy topics: advancing broadband connectivity, local infrastructure, small cells, and the opioid epidemic…to name a few.
