MACo’s Summer Conference is scheduled for August 18-21, 2021. Submit speaker proposals by April 15!
MACo is pleased to announce that we are starting preliminary planning to hold our 2021 Summer Conference in person at the Roland Powell Convention Center in Ocean City. Capacity will be limited and safety protocols will be in place, but one thing that won’t change is the high quality of the educational offerings. Sessions will focus on challenges and lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic response and recovery efforts.
August 18-21, 2021
Roland Powell Convention Center, Ocean City, MD
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world. All aspects of modern life have been affected – public health, of course, but also how we conduct business, educate our schoolchildren, and govern our communities. Some of these will return to “normal,” but some changes will be with us forever. The socio-economic impacts are still unfolding, but we can be certain – counties stood on the front lines of the pandemic and will lead the recovery. At this conference, MACo and county leaders will explore the local role in pandemic response and recovery – strategic planning, evolving service delivery, emergency communications, advancing technologies, and fiscal obstacles – all of which constitute the fabric of local leadership.
Interested speakers are invited to submit proposals through April 15.
