WHERE WILL MEETINGS BE HELD?

We’re trying to return to in-person meetings, but...

Until further notice, all MCCF meetings will take place virtually, not in person.  All dates and times listed are subject to change, so please check back before each monthly meeting to confirm the schedule and retrieve your access code.  We thank you for your patience during this troubling time.

Meetings of the Montgomery County Civic Federation are held monthly (except July and August) on the second Monday evening of the month, at 7:45 p.m., in various locations throughout Montgomery County.  [During the pandemic, this has switched to online meetings held at 7:30 p.m.]  Most monthly delegate assemblies include an informational program, followed by the business portion of the meeting.  The public is welcome to attend. VENUES

Executive Committee meetings are held the third Thursday of the month, unless that occurs in the same week as the General Meeting, when it slips to the following Thursday.  These meetings are also open to the public; contact the MCCF President for the location or, if virtual, access codes.
