Regional Meetings

Each of the ten MACD Regions hold a summer meeting to bring together local District board members, staff and partners to discuss local and regional and statewide activity updates.  These meetings are a wonderful learning and networking opportunity and provide the host District a chance to share a special program, location or project within their county.   Information on 2018 regional meetings is located on the Summer Region Meeting Page.
