In the interest of the health and safety of our members, and their families and colleagues, the 2020 MiSGMP Annual Education Conference (AEC), scheduled for March 18-20 at the Crowne Plaza in Grand Rapids is cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. (The MiSGMP Governing Board made this decision.)

The MiSGMP board will explore options for rescheduling the conference, in whole or in part, as well as refund options. Given the uncertainty of the spread of the coronavirus, it is unlikely any rescheduling would happen until June or later. Members will be updated as decisions are made.


You don't want to miss the hoedown themed Annual Education Conference! A number of pertinent education sessions have been planed that promise to be informative, innovative and motivational. In addition, there will be fun networking activities. 

AND...the AEC Planning Committee is excited to announce Judson Laipply as its keynote presenter! Judson will start the program with "Motivation, Inspiration and Manipulation: Creating and Leading Teams to Leave Lasting Imprints" and the close the event with "Life is Change". Descriptions about each presentation is available here
