In a video message, Governor Hogan commends MACo’s Summer Series – a weekly e-learning series dedicated to county challenges and solutions – as an innovative solution in a time of social distancing.
MACo’s Summer Conference is usually the political highlight of the summer, attracting 3,000 leaders from all levels of government and the commercial sector. With the COVID-19 pandemic causing the cancellation of this highly anticipated forum for education and partnership-building, the Association decided to provide a weekly series of online learning opportunities.
MACo’s Summer Series started on July 1 and will run for 9 weeks, featuring 2 or more sessions each week to provide county officials, employees, and others involved in local government with the information needed to tackle both coronavirus-related issues and more evergreen governance concerns. See the full schedule.
In a recent video message, Governor Larry Hogan – who usually delivers the closing address to MACo Summer Conference attendees – commended MACo for this decision and for “stepping up and providing critical resources during this unprecedented time.” He went on to describe MACo’s Summer Series as an “innovative alternative to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing local governments today.”
Registration is free (but required!) for county officials and employees.
Non-county registrants pay a nominal fee (see rates).
