If you’re already planning to join the League on Mackinac Island this October for our Convention you should consider attending some of the extra education workshops we have lined up about getting grants for your community, roles and responsibilities of elected officials, working with the media, and learning to lobby.

The Michigan Municipal League has four “post-Convention” education sessions scheduled to take place from 1-4 pm Friday, Oct. 5, following our Convention at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. Also, you don’t have to attend Convention to sign up for one of these post-Convention sessions, which range in cost from $10 to $75 for League members and $10 to $130 for non-League members.
