Michigan Municipalities are facing challenging times. Fewer and fewer people are covering more and more job functions, reducing efficiency and increasing pressure on staff.

As part of a series of vendor-sponsored sessions at the Michigan Municipal League’s 2012 Convention on Mackinac Island October 3-5, BS&A Software will give a presentation on developing feature-rich and seamlessly integrated financial management applications that help increase productivity. This session will demonstrate how technology can be used to share information electronically, automate paper processes and eliminate repetitive tasks.

Other vendor-sponsored sessions are on placemaking, health care reform, and building today's infrastructure for tomorrow. In addition, the League's Anthony Minghine will have a session on solutions to the many financial and other challenges communities are faced with today.

Check out the full Convention agenda and more detailed list of topics to be discussed, including a discussion on some of the controversial ballot issues that may appear on the November ballot, new laws regarding cell towers, how to secure grant funding for your community, how governments can address illegal drugs in their communities, collaborative innovation by Jeff DeGraff, local finance issues and strategies, and community design and sustainability. Be sure to register by tomorrow (Aug 31) to get the group discount rate at the Grand Hotel.
