ABOUT MICHIGAN TOWNSHIPS ASSOCIATION (MTA)
The Michigan Townships Association is a voluntary membership association for Michigan’s 1,240 townships. Its core mission is to advance local democracy by fostering township leadership and public policy essential for a strong and vibrant Michigan. While the anonymity of data is not an issue in their benchmarking model, understanding and using large quantities of data is a challenge. Dynamic Benchmarking developed the Michigan Townships Association Salary Survey which offers extensive reporting on compensation for township offices, boards, commissions and employees. Launched in early 2014, this survey gave townships the ability to compare themselves with others by applying a variety of customizable filters. Townships are now able to quickly get important information for compensation decision making.
