Policies and Resolutions


The MMA’s membership meets in January each year to identify priorities and adopt policies and resolutions that guide the association’s advocacy efforts for that year. These policies and resolutions are generated by the association’s policy committees, each of which addresses a specific subject area. In addition, the MMA’s Board of Directors may endorse certain advocacy objectives during the course of the year.
