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 that 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.
