Three township targeted topics over two days in one great location!
MTA can help your board understand the elements of strategic planning, structure more effective meetings and learn techniques for making sound land use decisions. Join us at the Bavarian Inn Lodge in Frankenmuth this July for one (or all!) of the courses described below:
Defining Your Township’s Land Use Future (July 11, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; includes continental breakfast and lunch)
Land use expert and author of MTA’s planning and zoning guidebooks Steve Langworthy takes you in depth exploring issues that must be confronted if your township planning efforts are to be successful. Learn the purpose, process and legal requirements of your master plan, and gain insights into a broad range of day-to-day and emerging land use issues.
Strategic Planning for Townships (July 12, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., includes continental breakfast)
Strategic planning is critical to achieving real results in your township. Governance expert Susan Radwan reviews what strategic exploration entails, as well as the voices that must be heard, in order to develop a solid plan that aligns the township’s resources and creates favorable outcomes.
Making Meetings More Effective (July 12, 1:30 to 5 p.m., includes lunch served at 12:30 p.m.)
Learn strategies for structuring your meetings to achieve more in less time, with fewer headaches! Uncover techniques for tackling differences around the board table while staying focused on results. Susan Radwan explores practical ways for your board to define and implement its own “rules of engagement” so your meetings will be orderly and productive.
