Advanced Institute


Offered each spring to provide continuing education for those who have completed Basic Institute. Presenters provide in-depth topics to help attendees challenge themselves and gain the tools necessary to further their understanding of public treasury and aid in their professional growth. Attendees value the educational offerings as well as the ability to revisit and strengthen their professional relationships that they started in Basic. Advanced Institute is only open to municipal members of MMTA who have graduated from Basic Institute. Registration fee is $379 for two and a half days of training, including most meals (attendees have the opportunity on one evening to network and have dinner on their own).
