About Us

The Partnership and Collaboration Core Committee at MATC sponsored a Value Gathering at Bucketworks for the purpose of starting a partnership Web portal, matcpartners.matc.edu.

Look around and provide feedback using the “Feedback” tab on the site.  Set up an account and start entering data if you are an agency in partnership with MATC or have a partnership with MATC. 

If you have concerns about the site that need answers you can contact the committee Co-Chairs, Lucia Francis or Roy Vargas.
