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:

  • a FREE booth in the MTA Expo
  • complimentary registrations to attend the Conference
  • a free advertisement in the Conference program
  • and more!

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.
