Membership Strength in Numbers

From the beginning the IMTA was established for the benefit of smaller municipalities. But the size of the communities has proven not to be a criterion for interest in membership. From cities like Peoria, Tinley Park and Springfield to small towns such as Hainesville, Villa Grove and Louisville, the IMTA has built its strength.
 
All members have traditionally one thing in common--the desire to better serve their communities by lifting the office of the treasurer towards a high standard of efficiency and commitment. One of the most important attributes belonging to membership is the friendly and fraternal feelings that have been inspired among its members.
