Make plans now to attend the 2017 Annual Meeting

The Municipal Association’s Annual Meeting will be held July 20 - 23 at Marriott Hilton Head Island. The Association will again use a registration/housing reservation process to ensure municipal officials receive priority for hotel reservations.

A drawing will be held on May 22 to determine the order of appointments for municipalities to make hotel reservations. To participate in the drawing, each municipality must select one representative to register all of its officials. The representative must register online by May 19 for the drawing.

This year, the appointments for municipal representatives to register their officials will be spread over three days. A limited number of appointments will be scheduled on Friday, June 2. The online registration system will be locked down on Saturday and Sunday. Appointments will resume on Monday, June 5, and Tuesday, June 6.

During the online process, municipal representatives will make hotel reservations and register municipal attendees for the meeting using a Visa or MasterCard with a sufficient credit limit and per transaction limit. Nonrefundable hotel deposits and registration fees are collected during the registration process.

After the drawing on May 22, Association staff will notify representatives of their appointment time and will post all appointment times at

During the 30-minute scheduled phone appointments on June 2, 5 and 6, an Association staff member will call the city representative to initiate the online registration/reservation process. The representative can only register municipal officials from his city during the appointment. The designated representative must have completed registration forms in hand, including housing and meal ticket requests, for each person being registered during the call.
