It's only April, but there's plenty to do to get ready for this year's Annual Meeting.
The Municipal Association's Annual Meeting, July 19 – 22 at the Marriott Hilton Head Island, will follow the same registration/housing reservation process as before to ensure municipal officials receive priority for hotel reservations and ticketed Annual Meeting events.
The Association drew city names in March to determine the order of appointments for cities and towns to make hotel reservations and register local officials. This guaranteed a fair process for all interested in attending the Annual Meeting.
April 9 – Agenda and registration information posted online. Registration brochures with meeting agenda mailed.
May 29, 30 and 31 – Cities with a phone appointment register on one of these days. During the appointments (order determined by March drawing), an Association staff member will call the city representative to start the online registration/reservation process.
A city's representative must have completed registration forms in hand, including housing and meal ticket requests, for each person to be registered during the city's call. During the online process, the city representative will use a Visa or MasterCard to make hotel reservations and register municipal attendees for the meeting. (Tip: Make sure the credit card has a sufficient credit limit and per-transaction limit.)
June 1 – Online meeting registration opens for cities without appointments and nonmunicipal officials.
June 19 – Deadline to make hotel reservations.
July 5 – Deadline to register for Annual Meeting.
July 19 – 22 – Annual Meeting.
