MMHR 2022 Holiday Meeting - Salem
Massachusetts Municipal Human Resources will hold its annual holiday meeting on Thursday, Dec. 8, in Salem.
During the meeting, KP Law managing attorney Lauren Goldberg will provide "First Amendment audit" training.
In recent years, municipalities across the country have been increasingly subjected to First Amendment audits, where self-described “auditors” record interactions with public officials in government buildings and post their videos on the internet.
Goldberg will provide an overview of First Amendment audits, how municipalities can prepare, what to do when an auditor shows up at a municipal building, and what to do after a municipality has been subjected to a First Amendment audit.
Registration and a networking breakfast will begin at 9 a.m. The program will start at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at 1 p.m. A light lunch will be served.
The meeting will be held at the Hawthorne Hotel at 18 Washington Square West in Salem.
The registration fee is $50 for members and $60 for nonmembers. Please note, if you have not paid your FY23 MMHR membership dues by the time of the meeting, you will be required to pay the nonmember rate. A complete agenda are available at mma.org.
