2021 Virtual Annual Conference

Bridging the Divide
October 13-15, 2021

Join us for the 2021 virtual MMANC annual conference! This year’s conference theme is “Bridging the Divide” – the COVID-19 pandemic as well as civil unrest over the past year and a half have highlighted divisions within our communities as well as opportunities to change the way things have been done as we move forward. Each day will include a specific focus around this theme, including how we bridge the divide within our teams, communities, and programs.

MMANC Virtual Annual Conference Testimonials:

Hosting a conference to give space to grow and breathe in new ideas is necessary to reconnect to why we do our work.” – Monica Elise Davis, Community Services Manager, City of Hayward

Being able to connect with MMANC colleagues in this difficult time was so helpful. The Virtual format allowed for flexibility during this hectic time. Breakout rooms and virtual networking promoted connections I will be able to foster in years to come!” – Giovanna Erkanat, Management Analyst II, Redwood City

“While I love a good MMANC in-person conference, I’m grateful the organization was able to pivot so quickly to host an all-virtual event. With the uncertainty the pandemic has brought us, I so value (now more than ever!) the connections, resources, and inspiration MMANC, and in particular, the annual conference brings.” – Allison Mattioli, Administrative Analyst II, City of Vallejo
