MMMA WLG Meeting North Reading 2022

Women Leading Government will hold a meeting titled “Owning the Interview Process” on June 23 at Hillview Golf Club in North Reading.

The day will open with a book discussion led by Needham Town Manager Kate Fitzpatrick and Southborough Assistant Town Manager Vanessa Hale. 

A panel of town managers and human resource directors — including Brookline Town Administrator Mel Kleckner, Stow Assistant Town Administrator Dolores Hamilton, and Westford Town Manager Jodi Ross — will share their experiences as hiring managers, focusing on why candidates move on in the job search process, and how candidates can be successful. They will also discuss recent trends in municipal hiring.

The panel will then engage in mock interviews with candidates. The interviews will be designed to show strengths and weaknesses of candidates, prompting discussion between attendees and the panel.

All attendees will have the opportunity to practice their interviewing skills in small groups.

The meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at 1:30 p.m. The cost is $20 per person, including lunch.

The U.S. CDC has designated half of the counties in Massachusetts as “high risk” for the transmission of COVID and is recommending that masks be worn in indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. In order to protect our members and staff and ensure that everyone feels comfortable attending our in-person meetings, the MMA is now requiring attendees to wear masks except when eating, drinking or presenting. On the day of the event, attendees of in-person meetings also must show proof of being fully vaccinated for COVID (card, photo or QR code). (Religious or medical vaccine exemptions are allowed with a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours.) These safety protocols are subject to change based on the latest public health data and guidance.
