Pursuant to Chapter 107 of the Acts of 2022, “An Act Relative to Extending Certain State of Emergency Accommodations,” public bodies may continue to hold meetings remotely without a quorum of the public body physically present at a meeting location, as long as they provide "adequate, alternative" public access to such remote meetings. On March 29, 2023, Governor Healey signed into law a supplemental budget bill which, among other things, extends the remote public meeting provisions pertaining to the Open Meeting Law to March 31, 2025.

Accordingly, the NHA Board will hold this as an in-person meeting, with the option for Commissioners and public attendance in person or virtually via ZOOM.
