MTA Training

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. Training is just a click away on our Online Learning Portal OR scroll down to see what's coming your way. 

MTA's UP North Summit

The program features three informative general sessions offering topics relevant to the entire township board, and 10 breakouts bringing something of interest for each office. Session descriptions and registration materials will appear in your April Township Focus.

Come early and catch a special afternoon class Fundamentals of Assessment & Taxation. Beginning with lunch at noon on June 7, this half-day class offers insights for every board member. Special pre-Summit rates make this a learning opportunity you simply can’t afford to miss.

You can join us for a session, an afternoon, one day or the full program. Whatever fits your budget, we’re looking forward to seeing you!
