After a lot of effort, the new MATR site is launching today. The goal has been to bring it’s capabilities up to current levels to provide a better vehicle to promote Montana, its businesses and, above all, the opportunities that the state provides for its citizens.

You can subscribe to the free newsletter here:

There will be a few different formats including the ability for companies to list their companies and then manage their listings. This will include GIS location capabilities so interested parties will know where they are located in Montana.

Career Opportunities will be modifiable by authors so that they can be removed when positions are filled.

Lots more but this will give you an idea of what’s been implemented based on the much appreciated suggestions we’ve received from MEDA readers.

This couldn’t have been done without the generous support of MATR’s
Sponsors and Supporters.   Heart felt thanks to all who support our efforts.  And a special thank you to the team at Helena, Montana based Actify Media for building a much more effective MATR web site.
