MACo’s Winter Conference is scheduled for December 8-10, 2021, at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Hotel in Cambridge, MD. Proposals for topics and workshops are being accepted through September 24.

MACo is pleased to announce the theme of our Winter Conference: “Time to Reboot: Tomorrow’s Tech Today.” Rapidly advancing technology has changed government service delivery. With remote work, virtual learning, ransomware, data security, and online meetings emerging as more widespread options – and in some cases, obstacles – this conference will explore how county governments are or should be approaching technology, and what tools can help them provide state-of-the-art services for Maryland residents.
Conduit Street Podcast Corner:

On the latest episode of the Conduit Street Podcast, Kevin Kinnally and Michael Sanderson preview next week's Board of Public Works meeting – including the history and substance of a proposal to oblige county funds for state-mandated electronic pollbooks, explain why legislative-executive checks and balances are behind the delay in implementing the State Board of Education's emergency regulation to require masks in all public schools, and discuss the latest push to get public and private sector employees vaccinated.

The Conduit Street Podcast is available on major platforms like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and more.
