The Main Committee is able to give direction to the work of the Sub-Committees by defining and moving projects forward.

As well as undertaking valuable work for the benefit of the MMTA and its Members, those who serve on the Main Committee, Sub-Committees and Task Forces benefit from networking and have the opportunity of building and maintaining lasting relationships with their peers, as well as developing their skills and knowledge of the metals industry as a whole.

The MMTA believes in small, effective Sub-Committees, drawn from a number of member companies. Anyone interested in becoming more involved should make this known to the Executive.
