We see an amazing state with incredible assets, and you’re at the helm of one of the communities that makes our state great. At this year’s Convention, we’ll provide you with ideas to strengthen your community as well as challenge you to think differently on how to make your community more livable, more attractive, more interesting, and more fun.

Join hundreds of municipal officials who will gather from every corner of the state to Traverse City, voted one of the most charming places in the country. This Northern Michigan community – widely known as the Cherry Capital of the World – offers a vibrant downtown, breathtaking views of Grand Traverse Bay, and four seasons of outdoor recreation.

2015 League Convention The Michigan Municipal League 2015 Convention takes place in downtown Traverse City, amidst an array of shops, galleries, restaurants and the beautifully-restored State Theatre, home to the world-renowned Traverse City Film Festival.  Get ready to expand your knowledge base with sessions on the most current topics affecting municipalities – everything from economic productivity in cities to cutting-edge technology and today’s hot municipal topics.

Venture out into the Traverse City community on a mobile workshop. Discover the work of the doers and dreamers who are redefining what it means to be a community in today’s global village. Sit down face-to-face with the peers and partners who are powering a statewide vision for change.

NEW THIS YEAR – Invite a Community Leader!
We recognize that creating great places takes a team of people, so we’re asking you to bring along other community leaders – economic development professionals and business and civic leaders. For every paid member registration, you may register one community leader FREE. Once your registration is complete, an invitation email will be sent to you with all the details!


Join us in downtown Traverse City, Sept. 16-18.

It’s the place where the Michigan of tomorrow is being built today.
