MTA's Virtual Conference returns to a computer near you in May 2024

Can’t make it to the event in person? Prefer to get your education online? You don’t have to miss out on all the action and inspiration that our Annual Conference offers. MTA will record the most popular portions and make it available for on-demand access. 

That’s right, you can watch our main stage events and 10 breakout sessions on key topics when, and where, it works best for you! But that’s not all, on-demand access lets you pause, rewind and watch them over (and over) again. Virtual Conference packages will be available for viewing in May and include three months of access. 

Additional information, including sessions descriptions, will be posted here in December and appear with the full Conference brochure in your January Township Focus magazine.


Navigating the platform

Once you are registered, sign in and click around! Use the menu bar at the top of the screen or the navigation buttons. Key areas include:

  • Sessions: Contains a list of all sessions, including educational breakouts, opening and general sessions, and the Annual Meeting.
  • Document Center: Visit this page to download and print presentations and other resources for any (or all!) of the educational sessions.

Additional tips and helpful FAQs

What if I don’t have an email address on file with MTA, or I need to change my email address?
Every attendee must have an individual email address on file with MTA (the email address where you receive our emails) to access the virtual conference. Please contact Rebecca at MTA via phone (517) 321-6467 Ext. 226 or email rebecca@michigantownships.org to add or change your email address.

What if my computer doesn’t have a webcam or microphone?
You do NOT need a webcam or microphone to view the recorded sessions. You DO need to enable to your computer’s audio so that you can hear the sessions; if your computer speakers are not strong enough, we suggest using headphones or earbuds.

What if I want to watch or listen on my smartphone, iPad or tablet?
Either download the “Google Chrome” browser on your iPad/tablet to watch via the virtual Conference web link, or download the event app (search for “Eventpedia” in your app store/Google Play), and log in using your email address.

I keep getting an error message when logging in?
If you receive an error message that your email address is not registered, first double check the spelling, and that you are using the email address on file with MTA and try again.
