Today’s township officials are in an extraordinary position to not just create a greater community—their efforts as local leaders help create a greater Michigan and a greater good among all our state’s residents.

Join MTA this April to learn innovative solutions, processes and ideas to effect greatness in your community and your state.

This spring, we’ll be returning to the Grand Traverse Resort in Acme Township (Grand Traverse Co.) for our 65th Annual Educational Conference & Expo, April 23-26, 2018. The Grand Traverse area offers so much more than just a stunning, picturesque landscape—the greater region is an inspiration for communities working together for the greater good of their corner of Michigan—helping to create a regional destination, with national recognition and a reputation for excellence.

Grand Traverse perfectly encapsulates this year’s Conference theme—Greater Township, Greater Good—and we’ll provide opportunities to allow attendees to head out into the Traverse area and experience the innovation and collaboration that has allowed the region to survive—and thrive—in today’s changing social and economic climates.

The locale may be inspiring enough, but we’ve got so much more in store for this year’s Conference. At more than 60 educational workshops, the leading local government thought leaders and governance experts will share ideas, examples and suggestions on thinking “big picture” and the impact you can make on the greater good. And of course, the irreplaceable networking and connections you’ll make among more than 1,000 local leaders simply cannot be replicated anywhere else.

Be part of something larger than yourself—be part of MTA’s 2018 Annual Conference.
