IAAO is Coming to Boston in 2022!!

The local Massachusetts Chapter of IAAO along with support from every New England State Association and Chapter has made a proposal to have the 2022 IAAO conference here in Boston.  The presentation was made to the Executive Board of IAAO on November 15th and we were chosen to host the convention.  The following link is the presentation in support of Boston in 2022!  www.maao.org/content/2018/IAAO Presentation 11.15.18 v1.pdf

This conference may be 4 years away, but there is a lot to do and I hope the local host committee can count on you.  Lane Partridge, MAA, President, Massachusetts Chapter of the IAAO and Bill Mitchell, MAA, RMA, President of MAAO, will be co-chairing the committee.  They are looking for others to serve on the committee.  If you are interested in serving on the committee or have ideas that will help make this the best convention in years, please reach out to Lane at lpartridge@concordma.gov or Bill at wmitchell@leominster-ma.gov
