******IMPORTANT MESSAGE******
In response to COVID-19 and in an effort to keep our attendees and communities safe, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person version of the 2022 MTWFA Conference. This difficult decision was made considering the challenges of hosting a safe, in-person event balanced with the risk of compromising the important work that we do for Massachusetts municipalities.

The conference will now only be offered as a live, remote event using Zoom. The agenda will remain the same and all continuing education credits will be offered as advertised.

Registration will close on January 7th at 5pm.

FAQ
How much does it cost?
  $180 members and $200 for non-members. 

What about the cost for multiple registrations, either from municipalities or commercial members? As in the past, if one member of a municipality is a current member, then all employees of that municipality are eligible for the member rate. Companies who have paid commercial dues in 2022 may also register any of their employees at the member rate.
