MVTA Board Educational Opportunities

This section is being developed in conjunction with the MVTA Board's Strategic Plan Update in 2013. Education is a key strategy in the Leadership & Governance area. This section is designed to give Board members easy access to information about upcoming conferences and to track minutes or issues related to our mission.

If there are additional Boards or web-sites to be added to this section, please contact the website administrator.
