Crain’s Detroit Business

The Detroit Regional Chamber’s 2019 Mackinac Policy Conference gave us the opportunity to hear from policymakers like our new governor and some potential future national news breakers like Stacey Abrams of Georgia and John Kasich of Ohio. Additionally, hearing from people such as Mayor Mike Duggan, our federal legislators and the quadrant leaders in Michigan solidified how much all our thought leaders want to prepare, grow and love Michigan.

We have a lot to do to keep Michigan moving forward, and it is much more likely to happen when we stand for One Michigan. Our state is competing on a global stage for prosperity, opportunity and equity for all of our citizens. We must stand together for our collective futures, for our state’s prosperity and for our children’s opportunities, right here at home. This year’s conference was an opportunity to clarify our mission and take our to-do’s to the next level both today and for the next generation.
