Position Statements

A position statement provides the collective opinion of the MTAA Board of Directors relating to practice issues, which may not be covered by a Standard of Practice or bylaw. Position statements (listed below) are often developed in response to members’ questions and provide a framework within which practice decisions can be made. Members whose practice is not consistent with the position outlined by the MTAA may be required to justify their conduct or actions.
