Winter Conference

Educational Opportunities

The Winter Conference is a three-day event and is scheduled to be held at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Hotel in Dorchester County through 2021. It draws nearly 600 county and state elected and appointed officials.

Educational session topics focus on reviewing timely issues that will be relevant during the upcoming Maryland General Assembly Session. Like the Summer Conference, there are many regional county meetings, state agency briefings, Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) committee and board meetings, and academy credit courses offered.

At the Winter Conference, there are 70 tabletop exhibits on display Wednesday & Thursday and a spouse tour is offered on Thursday of the conference.
