Start a Local Association

Local Associations
Our members are part of a powerful network of teaching professionals through their involvement in local associations activities. Local Associations provide special educational programming, festivals and opportunities to meet new friends with common interests.

If you are interested in organizing an MTNA local association in your area, please download a Local Association Handbook at the bottom of this page.

Local association status will not be granted until the association's application, as well as the bylaws have been approved by the state MTA board of directors and MTNA. Your association president or contact person will be notified of your acceptance.

For more information, please contact MTNA National Headquarters at 1 W. 4th St., Ste. 1550, Cincinnati, OH 45202; (513) 421-1420; (888) 512-5278; E-mail:
