Welcome to MassPAC
NEW – SEPAC TRAINING RESOURCES
A new SEPAC training program – SEPAC Summer School – took place over Zoom for 10 weeks this summer, starting on July 7th from 7-8 PM. The first 30 minutes was a presentation on a topic and a sharing of resources. At 7:30, attendees went into breakout rooms to have a conversation and network. We welcomed over 50 new and seasoned SEPAC members to learn how to build and grow a successful SEPAC and share best practices. SEPAC Summer School session information (agenda, handouts and recordings) can be found HERE.
MassPAC Virtual Office Hours – fist and third Tuesday evenings from 7-8PM. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for zoom links. Stop by!
