As soon as the last person headed home from the League’s 2013 Convention in Detroit, our heads began spinning with new ideas for our 2014 Convention. Mark your calendars for Oct. 15-17 and plan to join your fellow municipal officials in Marquette, a northern Michigan gem nestled on the sparkling shore of Lake Superior. We’ll fill you in on lots of things you may not know about this Upper Peninsula community – from its internationally-acclaimed Northern Michigan University to its thriving downtown and spectacular recreational opportunities.
To sharpen your skills and knowledge base, we have planned sessions on a wide variety of topics. You’ll have an opportunity to learn everything from crowdfunding to boomer turnover to placemaking like a developer. You’ll also have a chance to get out in the fresh Upper Peninsula air and see what makes Marquette unique on one of several mobile workshops.
So get ready to grab onto some new ideas that you can apply in your own community. Registration starts June 23!
