Michigan Township Association
We are headed back to the Grand Traverse Resort in Acme Township (near Traverse City) April 17-20, 2023!
Township officials and employees from all over the state are invited to MTA’s Conference & Expo! If local government is your market, the MTA Conference & Expo offers your company access to township officials from across the state! More than 6,500 township officials need both the education and connection offered at our Conference. And an important part of our Conference is you!
Ensure you are on the email list for Conference sponsorship opportunities and Expo registration information!
IMPORTANT: All expo registration and housing confirmations will come from MTA or our housing bureau, Grand Connection; any third-party emails or websites are fraudulent. Similarly, MTA does not use a third party to distribute attendee lists.
Sponsors of the MTA Annual Educational Conference & Expo provide an invaluable service to Michigan township officials by supporting the educational and networking opportunities that help them become more effective and efficient leaders and board members.
Conference sponsorship is your opportunity to reach new and seasoned township officials and decision-makers. MTA revamped sponsorship opportunities and benefits to create one-stop shopping, heighten our sponsors’ visibility and outreach to Conference attendees, and add more value to your selected sponsorship. Some of the most valuable new sponsor benefits, at certain levels, include:
MTA recognizes Conference sponsors who help us meet the needs of township government and we work hard to ensure sponsors are acknowledged throughout the entire process of promoting and staging the Conference & Expo.
