**2018 is an election year, so MACo's "2018" Winter Conference will be held in January 2019. With the election held in November on 2018, this gives the newly elected officials more of an opportunity to attend the event and take advantage of MACo's highly acclaimed Newly Elected Officials Orientation. The "2019" Winter Conference will be held in December 2019.
