A message to League members from League CEO and Executive Director Dan Gilmartin:

The Detroit bankruptcy is news of huge concern to all our members—creating statewide questions regarding what it could mean for other Michigan communities. In light of the importance of this matter, we are scheduling a special panel discussion on the topic during the Sept. 20th closing session of the League’s 2013 Convention in Detroit.

A panel of the state’s top municipal finance experts will discuss what the bankruptcy means not just for Detroit but for communities across the state. They will also discuss the impact on the state itself, any long-term financial and governmental ramifications that might result, and if this could be the start of a serious discussion to fix a broken municipal finance system.

I strongly urge every one of you to attend this panel discussion on what is, without a doubt, an unprecedented event in Michigan’s municipal history. Information on the Convention itself and registration is available here.

Daniel P. Gilmartin
Executive Director & CEO
