Dear Municipal Human Resources professional:

It is my great pleasure to announce to you the formation of the Maine Local Government Human Resources Association (MLGHRA) – the newest Affiliate Chapter of the Maine Municipal Association.

MLGHRA has been in existence for about a decade as an informal group of municipal employees who are responsible for the human resources function in their organization. The core purpose – which remains today – has been to network and share information and resources amongst those who share the same responsibilities and challenges. It has been an invaluable resource for our communities and for professional development, and we hope to continue to expand and grow it.

Any employee who is responsible for the human resources function in their municipality, county, or other local government organization is eligible to join. Our membership dues are $25.00 per year.

Members will be added to our email distribution list with access to over 50 other professionals in roles such as our own. Members will also be granted access to members-only resources on the website and MLGHRA also offers two workshop trainings throughout the year.

We hope you will join us for an upcoming meeting of MLGHRA. We typically meet every other month and the host locations vary.

Please download our Membership Application form. If you are interested in becoming more involved in a committee or leadership role, please take a moment to indicate so on the form. For more information, please email us at
