Special_rec_eDet2013 Mackinac Policy Conference leadership opened the final day of the Conference with a special presentation of two individuals who have made a lasting mark on the Conference and the state of Michigan. Following a tribute of the late Grand Hotel owner Dan Musser Jr. by Henry Ford Health System CEO and Chair of the Detroit Regional Chamber Board of Directors Nancy Schlichting, Dan Musser III took the stage to celebrate the life of his father.
