As I start to pack up my office after nearly 30 years at MACDC, I have been thinking a lot about the past, present, and future of the CDC sector in Massachusetts. Yes, the old photos and documents bring back memories, but they also inspire excitement about what is possible in the future.

On Saturday October 29th, MACDC held our 40th Anniversary Celebration and Convention – and what a celebration it was! With more than 350 community developers gathered at Polar Park in Worcester, and 70 more on ZOOM, we provided an opportunity for people to connect, learn, celebrate, feel inspired, and exercise their collective power to shape public policy.
Thank you again to all who attended – both in person and virtually – for making this event such a success! A big thank you to all of our sponsors for their steadfast support of MACDC and the community development movement in MA!
