(Member municipalities paying annual dues in excess of $15,000 are entitled to one free On Demand presentation per calendar year; subsequent presentations are subject to the $550.00 fee.) The municipality requesting a presentation will be billed and is responsible to NHMA for full payment. However, we encourage the requesting municipality to invite officials and employees from surrounding NHMA-member municipalities and to negotiate a cost-sharing arrangement with those other municipalities.

Virtual On Demand!

We also offer a virtual On Demand option via the Teams or Zoom platform.  Attendees can participate from the comfort of their home or office and ask live questions. The cost for a virtual On Demand is $400.00.
