Monterey, California | October 26-28, 2022

Rooted in Resilience

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

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

“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


Join us for the 2022 MMANC Annual Conference in Monterey! We are back in person after two years of virtual conferences and looking forward to seeing you!

This year’s conference theme is “Rooted in Resilience” – the past two years have demonstrated the need for and importance of personal and professional resilience including how we leverage resiliency to support those we serve. Each day will include a mix of sessions focusing on how we build more resilient leaders, organizations, and communities. This year’s conference will also feature a walking tour in historic downtown Monterey and a beachside reception- you don’t want to miss out!
