MTA brings you a new live webinar every month!

Make the most of your lunch break with MTA's lunchtime learning series, Now You Know. These live one-hour webinars provide timely updates, insights from our experts and a chance to get your questions answered in real time. Wondering what's coming up next? Our ordinance series returns on Wednesday, May 18 at noon with a review of proper adoption procedures AND concludes July 13 with insights into successful enforcement strategies. Why register for both? Because properly written and enforced ordinances not only boost your credibility, they limit public complaints and assist with fair and effective enforcement.
