It's time to register for 2018 Legislative Conference
County leaders can now register for the 2018 MAC-MCMCFC Legislative Conference, March 26-28 in Lansing. The theme of the event, "Building a Better Commissioner," reflects MAC's goal of assisting members in the myriad challenges they face each day in their local communities.
The conference will include in-depth policy breakouts on everything from the opioid crisis to how to handle a media storm. Check details in the Registration Packet for which sessions have been designated as part of MAC's "Better Commissioner" Program.
