ANN ARBOR, Michigan - Long-time Michigan Municipal League employee Kelly Warren has recently taken on a new role as the League’s director of membership and affiliate engagement.

In this new role, Warren dedicates a significant portion of her time to strategically engaging members, and connecting members to the League’s innovative programs and services. Specifically, she oversees the ongoing operations, programs and services for the League’s affiliate organizations, including planning and developing of new programs and services, communications, and outreach strategies. These affiliate organizations include the Michigan Association of Mayors, the Michigan Municipal Executives and the Michigan Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials. She also works closely with the Michigan Association of Municipal Attorneys, and she is the administrator of the Elected Officials Academy.  

“When we thought about ways to improve and expand our relationship with our affiliate member organizations, Kelly was a natural fit as the best person to make that happen,” said Dan Gilmartin, CEO and executive director for the League. “Kelly has a fantastic relationship with so many of our members, it made sense for her to lead our work in this area.”

Warren has more than 20 years of experience planning events, managing projects, problem solving, and building relationships with members. She started with the League in 1997 and served as the organization’s events director from 2008-2016. In 2016, she became the director of affiliate engagement. Prior to joining the League, she worked at Eastern Michigan University.

“As the events director, I worked closely with our members and affiliate organizations, so I was very familiar with these groups already,” Warren said. “I am excited to have this opportunity to not only continue to work with them, but help foster an even stronger relationship with our members and organizations.”

Kelly received her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Eastern Michigan University. She is a member of the American Society of Association Executives. Outside of her role with the League, Kelly is the leader of the Detroit Chapter of The Compassionate Friends.
