Advanced Institute is designed to provide members with credentials like the MiCPT and the CPFA an opportunity to further investigate topics in order to challenge themselves and advance their understanding of public treasury. Topics are often advanced and will include both on-the-job skills as well as a deeper look at developing interpersonal, leadership and management skills necessary to run a successful treasury office. There is always a heavy emphasis on peer learning and networking to ensure attendees develop professional resources.

Location and Lodging
The Advanced Institute conference will be held at the H Hotel at 111 W. Main Street in downtown Midland. Sessions will take place in the Indigo Ballroom. The H Hotel has a parking garage below the hotel (accessible from Ashman Street) as well as a large parking lot in front of the hotel - follow Ashman Street to the right in front of the hotel portico to access the free parking lot that is near the riverfront park. Most attendees choose to stay in downtown Midland for the conference but anyone who lives nearby is welcome to commute.

Update: the H Hotel is fully booked for this conference. You can still make reservations in the MMTA room block at the Fairfield Inn & Suites on 506 Buttles Street in downtown Midland. The Fairfield is only a few blocks away from the conference site at the H Hotel and is an easy drive or about a half mile walk. The MMTA room rate at the Fairfield ranges from $125 - $135/night (make sure to tell them you're with the Michigan Municipal Treasurers Association to get this rate). Contact the Fairfield at (989) 631-7100 or use this link to make reservations online. 

Downtown Midland provides a wide variety of activities and restaurants while you're in town. 

The Advanced Institute registration fee is $325. This includes all sessions, materials, and most meals (attendees are on their own for dinner on Tuesday and lunch on Wednesday, since training concludes prior to lunch).
