LANSING, Michigan - The Michigan Municipal League has simplified the presentation process to keep this program accessible, as well as relocated the first round to our member's Regional Roundtable sessions during our Capital Conference in Lansing March 20, 2012. The League recognizes innovative solutions through the peer-nominated Community Excellence Award, a spirited competition we affectionately call “The Race for the Cup.”

All Community Excellence Award (CEA) presentations will be limited to an “elevator pitch” format and will be presented at their Roundtable on March 20, 2012. Communities entering will have five minutes to passionately present their project—no videos, no PowerPoints, nothing but your project and power of persuasion! 

Regional winners, who will be voted on by their peers on March 20, will compete at our Annual Convention and typically prepare more spectacular videos and/or PowerPoint presentations for that venue.

Matt Bach is director of communications for the Michigan Municipal League. He can be reached at or (734) 669-6317.

Officials from Clare's Cop & Donuts Business celebrate winning the 2011 Community Excellence Award.
