Make plans now to attend the 2018 Annual Meeting

The Municipal Association’s Annual Meeting will be held July 19 – 22 at the Marriott Hilton Head Island. The Association will use the same registration/housing reservation process as in past years to ensure municipal officials receive priority for hotel reservations and ticketed Annual Meeting events.

The Association will hold a drawing on March 12 to determine the order of appointments for municipalities to make hotel reservations and register local officials. The deadline for municipal representatives to register for the drawing is March 7. 

After the drawing, Association staff will notify representatives of their 30-minute appointment time and will post all appointment times online.

Registration materials will be posted to the Association's website and mailed on April 9. The 30-minute appointments for municipal representatives to register their officials will be scheduled for May 29, 30 and 31.

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 will be collected during the registration process.

During the scheduled phone appointments, 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 the completed registration forms in hand, including housing and meal ticket requests, for each person being registered during the call.
