President's Message

Hello Supervisors,

The mission of The Michigan Association of Township Supervisors is to seek ways to strengthen our municipal government by networking with each other and by furthering our education so we can succeed in townships everywhere. To do so, we need to ensure that we are attending conferences where we can mentor others and receive mentoring ourselves. MATS is an excellent support group for new supervisors and ones with many years of experience.

Join us for the Fall Education Conference, November 3-4 at the new Courtyard Hotel in Mount Pleasant. The costs for the conferences are kept low to make it possible for any Supervisor to attend.  The education sessions are topics that have been requested by our members and always include a good question and answer period.  There is a lot of opportunity for roundtable discussions and one-on-one time with other Supervisors.  I have attended MATS conferences for many years and have always walked away with something new to apply on my job and I hope you will too.  

See you in Mount Pleasant in November!
