Mackinac Policy Conference


This past week, at the historic Grand Hotel Mackinac Island, leaders from various sectors of society gathered for the Mackinac Policy Conference.

The conference is held annually and covers critical issues facing the State of Michigan such as the future of Michigan, economic growth, education, the changing landscape in business, advancing DEI initiatives and just about anything that is needed to shape Michigan’s future in the best way possible.

The conference is one of the ways, that the connective tissue stays connected, when policy is needed.

This year’s theme, ‘Bridging the Future Together’ with collaboration across divides. Seems almost ‘cliche’ … but it’s incredibly critical to do so, if the state is to continue advancing forward as well as possible.

Michigan for example, is home to the Automotive Industry. The state leaders need to create opportunities for companies in this industry to invest in Michigan. The corporations work with the universities that educate talent for this space, to make sure the right programs are being taught.

The advancements in the automotive industry of course are highlighted by the transportation provided on the island …. horse and buggy …. watch your step.
