MTA ‘Off the Road’ virtual summit wraps up next week

MTA wraps up our first-ever 'Off the Road' virtual summit next week. Don’t miss out on this chance for your entire township (yes, we mean everyone!) to participate and hear important updates for one low price of just $348! Just this week, the state Legislature passed legislation amending the Open Meetings Act to allow for limited virtual meetings, and the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration released emergency rules for workplace safety. Next week’s summit is your chance to get up to date on these recent changes—and more—impacting your township during our ever-evolving times. The day includes sessions on: 

  • The recent Michigan Supreme Court ruling vacating COVID-19-related executive orders, and subsequent state department orders and legislation, on efforts to keep Michiganders safe during the pandemic 
  • A look at the Open Meetings Act today, including guidance on virtual meetings—the limits and timeframe  
  • Insights into workplace safety requirements for your township hall and facilities—keeping your officials, employees and residents safe 
  • The latest from the state’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency on the landscape of the medical and recreational marijuana industry in Michigan 

You’ll also get Q&A time with MTA’s Executive Director, Member Information Services and Government Relations staff, a legislative update ahead of the lame-duck session, a virtual vendor showcase and even a chance to win door prizes.

Registration allows participation live on Tuesday, October 20 AND on-demand access to all sessions through the end of 2020—allowing you and your colleagues to decide what to watch and when.
