Want to Speak at Winter #MACoCon?

Submit a Proposal by Sept 23 

MACo’s Winter Conference is scheduled for January 4-6, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Hotel in Cambridge, MD. Proposals for topics and workshops are being accepted through September 23, 2022.

The theme of our Winter Conference is: “Hit the Ground Running.” Presentations will deliver county government fundamentals, along with deep dives on the important issues coming up in the 2023 legislative session. The conference will offer a forward-looking perspective across all levels of government as a new four-year term begins in Maryland.

More details (including registration, exhibits, and sponsorships) will be available soon, but interested speakers are encouraged to review the Call for Proposals and submit suggestions by September 23.
