MTA offers free online learning access for 2020 Conference registrants

Thank you for registering to attend MTA’s 2020 Conference & Expo. As you know, the COVID-19 situation in Michigan makes it impossible for us to safely hold this annual event, and gather together as a township community. MTA staff is saddened by the loss of this opportunity to share education, networking and fun with you and your fellow board members, and know that our members feel the same loss while absolutely understanding the necessity to make this difficult decision.

Regardless of our inability to meet face-to-face, MTA is dedicated to keeping you connected and informed when it comes to your township operations, obligations and communications. We are here to serve you, as you continue to serve your communities in these unprecedented times.

While we know that it will not replace the experience of the Conference, we are giving every 2020 MTA Conference registrant FREE access to the "Essentials" webcast courses in our eLearning Library through the end of June. This is a great time to take advantage of MTA's online learning options. Your free trial includes ten webcasts on a variety of topics designed for all board members, offering required knowledge and skills for all townships.

Don't delay, your free access expires June 30. Read on for instructions on how to log in and get started, and check out descriptions of each webcast available in your free trial.
