BUILDING MICHIGAN COMMUNITIES CONFERENCE 2019
With over 1,500 attendees, the Building Michigan Communities Conference has quickly become the largest conference of its kind in the United States. The conference is attended by service providers, nonprofit and for-profit developers and financiers.
Join your legislators and staff for lunch on the lawn. This is your opportunity to speak to your state elected officials and raise awareness around the issues of housing, homelessness and historic preservation.
This year’s conference has a larger focus on advocacy featuring a legislative panel at Monday’s lunch, and several advocacy-focused conference sessions on Monday afternoon. On Tuesday, travel to the Capitol for our Lunch on the Lawn. All offices from the House and Senate will receive invitations to join us and speak with their constituents. If you are interested in meeting with your legislator in their office, please indicate this on the registration page and identify your legislative district (state representative and state senator). Look up the officials in your district at house.mi.gov or senate.mi.gov.
Building Michigan’s Communities: That is what we are all here for. More and more, everyone in our industry is focused on HEALTHY communities.
What does that mean? What are industry leaders doing in their every day work to turn their focuses to building healthy communities? This opening session will help answer these questions and more. We’ll address some statistics provided by the Michigan League for Public Policy and hear about what developers and community leaders are doing in their own communities.
Panelists: Mark McDaniel, Cinnaire; Sandra Pearson, Habitat for Humanity of Michigan; Bri McKee, Habitat Kent County; Denny Sturtevant, Dwelling Place; Julie Cassidy, Michigan League of Public Policy; Lynn Henges, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services
