It’s spring — and time to talk policy

Crain’s Detroit Business

KC Crain

The weather doesn’t feel like it, but it is definitely spring. And spring in Detroit means it’s time to head up to Mackinac Island for the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Mackinac Policy Conference.

Last week, Detroit Chamber CEO Sandy Baruah and conference Chair and Consumers Energy CEO Patti Poppe stopped by our office to fill us in on the latest agenda.

You can tell Patti is absolutely interested in covering Detroit issues but really sees this as an opportunity to bring the entire state together.

She is quick to point out that education is not just a Detroit problem but a real statewide concern. This year, for the first time, an entire afternoon at the conference will be dedicated to education.
