Michigan Townships Association

Spirit of MTA Award

Is there an elected official in your township whose dedication to their community—either as a whole, for local authority, or for a specific cause, project or service—should be recognized among their peers statewide? Nominate them for the “Spirit of MTA” award! 

This new award was created to recognize township leaders who defend and advance the best interests of their township—as the organization has done on behalf of all Michigan’s 1,240 townships for more than 70 years.

We’ll honor the inaugural award recipient at our Annual Educational Conference in April 2024. The conference “One Team” theme perfectly encapsulates township service—and award nominations should highlight how the nominee serves your township’s team. Nominations are due Jan. 7.
