We are thrilled to have the privilege of hosting this year’s Annual Meeting of Members once again in Hartford where CIRMA’s employees, strategic business partners, and hundreds of municipal, local public agency, and department of education leaders join together to reflect on our shared accomplishments, exchange knowledge and new ideas, and dissect and decipher the latest industry trends.

This year’s program offers a unique and much-needed opportunity for the CIRMA Community to connect, reflect, and share knowledge. Be sure to visit this site often for the latest information leading up to the event. This year, our attendees will enjoy a specially-curated annual meeting experience filled with a dynamic selection of speakers and topics.
