An open invite to the Michigan Municipal League Convention from Let's Save Michigan:

When we first started Let's Save Michigan, place was not a normal part of the discussion for most cities and certainly not in Lansing.  Through the work of LSM and others, place is now a real part of the economic strategy for Michigan. Perhaps the loudest voice delivering the place message has been the Michigan Municipal League. They helped change the conversation and have become a nationally recognized leader on the importance of placemaking.

The League recognizes the important role we play as well in helping change that conversation, and has opened up their
annual meeting to LSM members. The League's 2012 Convention takes place on Mackinac Island, October 3-5. This meeting will provide two key opportunities for members of LSM.  First, it features some of the best minds on place-based strategies.  The speaker line-up includes Josh McManus, Lead Inventor of Little Things Labs; Jennifer H. Goulet, President & CEO of ArtServe Michigan; and Clarence Anthony President of Anthony Government Solutions, Inc. to name a few.  Second, it is an unique opportunity to network with the local elected officials who shape public policy in our communities.

If you are interested in taking advantage of the invitation to attend, registration info is available

Our goal has been to help provide real solutions that can help Michigan emerge from the current downturn stronger, more livable, and more likely to withstand future economic crises. This only happens if we convince our elected officials to put the right policies in place. To save Michigan, we must come together and fight for smart redevelopment and a rededication to our cities. Our cities should be transformed into centers for culture and innovation to attract a talented workforce and tomorrow's growth industries. This meeting is a great place to help make that happen. I hope many of you will be able to attend.
