MSA Newly Elected Select Board Training 2022
The Massachusetts Select Board Association will hold a free training for newly elected select board members on Saturday, July 23, in Devens.
Key topics will include municipal finance and budgeting, open meeting and public records laws, and collaborative decision making. A roundtable discussion will provide an opportunity to hear from veteran select board members about their experiences, followed by an open question and answer session.
The training will be targeted to newly elected members, but any select board member is welcome to attend for a refresher and an opportunity to network with colleagues.
Registration and networking will begin at 8:30 a.m. The program will start at 9 a.m., and lunch will be served. The full agenda will be available at www.mma.org in June. The training will be held at Devens Commons Center, 31 Andrews Parkway in Devens.
