Middlesex 3 holds regular events throughout the year. Most events are open to the public, and free for M3 members. We encourage non-members to check out what we do and attend a few events before becoming a member.

Why Attend an M3 Event?

M3 events are a great way to get connected with the M3 community and stay on top of important topics that are focused on our key initiatives of economic and workforce development, transportation and infrastructure improvement. 

  • Our events are attended by a cross-section of business, government, and education leadership (including municipal and state leaders, businesses doing work in the region, including our top employers, non-profit and academic thought leaders, and real estate owners and developers.
  • We feature timely topics and offer open forums for discussion and debate with thought leaders from our community and from higher education.  
  • We provide opportunities to get the latest updates and connect with leadership from regional and state economic development, transportation development, and workforce development agencies.
