MTA 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.

Board of Review Training

MTA’s Board of Review Training has earned a reputation for being the best, most comprehensive training for new and seasoned board of review members (and alternates!), as well as township supervisors and assessors. These half-day events allow participants to choose the appropriate level and topics of interest. The advanced session is geared to experienced board of review members, while the basic session acquaints newer board of review members with their statutory duties and requirements.
