MCTI is offered as a series of six half-week (2.5 days) sessions. Each year, two half-week sessions are scheduled. Each session is unique and designed to build on the previous sessions. Participants are encouraged but not required to attend consecutive sessions thus completing MCTI in three years.
The Institute is approved by both the International Institute of Municipal Clerks and the Association of Public Treasurers.
Sponsored by the Municipal Association of SC, Center for Governmental Services at the University of South Carolina's Institute of Public Service and Policy Research and the SC Municipal Finance Officers, Clerks and Treasurers Association.
