MTA Local Councils

Michigan Trucking Association works on the local level through councils, which are located around the state. Monthly meetings are held from September through May, where speakers address a variety of safety and equipment topics.   

Each council sets its own agenda, events and annual dues to cover meeting expenses. This gives them the flexibility to address topics of interest in their geographic areas while under the leadership of MTA.
