2022 Fall Conference

The 2022 Fall Conference will be held September 18 - 21, 2022 at Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville (a little south of Traverse City). The last time MMTA was at Crystal Mountain was in 2017; if you were able to attend, you'll remember what a fantastic location it is for Fall Conference.

How you attend this year's Fall Conference is your choice: registration is available to attend in-person at Crystal Mountain or online via our virtual livestreaming event. This year's Fall Conference has all of the great training that you've come to expect from MMTA. There will also be plenty of celebrations for the on-site attendees, including our annual recognition of MMTA's Past Presidents, new and renewing MiCPTs certifications, the 2022 PRIME Award Honoree, and installation of the 2022-23 Board of Directors. The Association will also have its Annual Meeting (one for municipal members and a separate meeting for associate members). The municipal annual meeting will be included on the livestream. 

Register now for the 2022 Fall Conference.

Golf Event
Crystal Mountain has amazing golf courses. The conference planning committee is excited to offer attendees the ability to play in the MMTA 2022 Golf Event for only $65. This includes nine holes of golf on the beautiful Betsie Valley course (cart fees are included in the price). If you don't golf but would like to be a part of the event, make sure to note it on your registration. There are options for non-golfers to be the designated driver and perhaps take part in other fun activities on the course. There is no charge if you want to be a part of the golf event without actually golfing, but space is limited. Tee time is 2:00 pm on Sunday.
