BARI Conference Week 14: What Cities and Towns Need Now

3:30 pm, Friday, July 31st

The BARI Conference concludes with a closing Keynote at 3:30 pm on Friday, July 31st. This conversation with Mayor’s and municipal leaders from throughout the commonwealth will address challenges that municipalities are facing today. The Panelists will explore how research and technology can be leveraged for equitable solutions as we move into a Post-COVID-19 future.

Each panel is presented live via Zoom. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions via chat, and each session will be recorded and released as an audio podcast the following week. If you have already registered for a previous week of the conference, you don’t need to register again.

Register for the conference today, and we’ll share the access information by email before each session. Panels will be from 3:30 – 4:345 pm. Following the panel we will have our Conference Reception to close out the BARI Conference.
