The 2014 Michigan Municipal League annual Capital Conference is just a few days away and this year's event will focus on how thriving communities are critical to Michigan’s long-term success and sustainability.

Specifically, the conference taking place March 18-19 in Lansing, is structured around the League’s Partnership for Place policy agenda. This agenda, approved by the League board in summer of 2013, proposes a partnership of action between the State and its municipalities to facilitate economic growth and develop places with a high quality of life, while using a regional approach to services, resources, and systems.

The 2014 Capital Conference is the place to learn how this proactive agenda will help drive the future for Michigan communities in the key areas of municipal funding, transportation, talent retention, infrastructure, and development.

Session topics include:

  • Updates on the effort to reform the Personal Property Tax

  • Crowdfunding - a new, pro-business movement in Michigan that could boost your community's economy

  • A live Legislative hearing on transportation featuring national transit experts
  • Remaking Main Street

  • Talent in Place

  • Municipal Finance

  • Lobbying

  • And of course the annual Spring Expo
