This is an important and exciting time for MUTA, as we seek to further our position as the voice of the industry, raising awareness of the Association and promoting its standards amongst those within the industry and the wider public. The launch this week of the new MUTA website and the Use a MUTA Member campaign are just the first steps in a series of innovative plans we have for the Association.
