Get Ready for HLAD 2019

​The Municipal Association's Hometown Legislative Action Day arrives Tuesday, February 5. Here's what attendees need to know:

The app
The HLAD app gives users a way to create a personalized schedule from the HLAD agenda and, if applicable, the agenda for the Municipal Elected Officials Institute on February 6. Users also have access to internal social media for the event.

To get the app, visit on your device and follow the instructions on the page. You'll be asked to install Yapp from the app store (if you don't have it already). Open Yapp and tap the HLAD graphic.


Limited parking for HLAD participants can be found in the parking garage behind the Marriott, with entrances on Hampton and Sumter streets. Parking in the garage costs $10 per day, payable by cash or credit card. Meeting attendees and hotel guests may not park above level 4-A in this garage, or they will be towed.

Additional parking will be available at the Cannon parking garage located at 1227 Taylor St., which is one block from the hotel. At the Cannon Garage on Taylor Street, a special events attendant will be in the garage from 7 – 11 a.m. Attendees must pay the special events attendant $10 (cash only) and place a parking ticket on the car dashboard.

The Marriott will provide a shuttle between the hotel and the Cannon Garage on Taylor Street. For HLAD on February 5, the shuttle runs 8 to 10:30 a.m. and 4 to 7:30 p.m. For the MEO Institute on February 6, the shuttle runs 8 to 10 a.m. and 4 to 5:30 p.m.
