It shall be the objective of this organization to provide a means by which geographically related townships in metropolitan areas and located within the boundaries of the State of Illinois may discuss issues and cooperate together in the public interest on matters of mutual concern.

In order to achieve this objective, the Metropolitan Township Association will provide for its autonomous Members a medium through which they may jointly: study and solve mutual problems of township government; exchange viewpoints and experiences in matters of township government; further intergovernmental cooperation; and, whenever deemed necessary, provide research and technical assistance in the development of solutions to township problems, develop and articulate policy positions of relevance to metropolitan townships, provide training and educational programs designed to enhance the effectiveness of township governance, develop a strategy and plan of action for the purpose of achieving common goals.
