The MTA Knowledge Center provides a wide variety of educational workshops throughout the state each year. Topics range from the basic “nuts and bolts” duties of township officials to advanced policy issues that our members face. All programs are tailored to address core competencies for elected township officials.

Whether you’re relatively new to governmental accounting, or seeking a refresher, you can’t afford to miss this opportunity to learn from the author of the Township Focus’ popular Financial Forum column, David Williamson, CPA.
Delve into the Uniform Chart of Accounts and options for organizing it, as well as new activity and review the information and forms required to prepare for an audit and complete required State of Michigan financial reports.
Dates & locations:
Every township should have written administrative policies and procedures. It’s essential that township board members adopt policies that are mandated by law—but also those that simply make life easier—and adapt them for your township’s specific circumstances.
Failing to create policies and procedures that are really workable not only makes tough decisions more difficult, it also puts your township at risk.
Dates and locations:
Join us in December to learn best practices and practical approaches to common administrative issues that work for any size township including policies required by law, financial, board, administration and service-related policies.
