    Mark your calendars and save the dates for the second year of the new Spring Meeting format. In order to better serve our members we will be focusing all of the MiGCSA Education Committee efforts into one traveling Spring Meeting. This year we are heading to the Greektown Casino on February 26th & 27th. In order to better accommodate our members schedules we will begin at 1:00 on February 26th and conclude on February 27th at 12:30 pm.

    In an effort to make this event as affordable as possible the cost will again be only $75 for class A, B and AFF Members and $25 for all other classes, or for employees of Class A&B MiGCSA Members. This is made possible by the support of our Industry Partners.

    Hotel rooms will be available for $142.00 (+ 15% tax) minus a $40 discount per room for MiGCSA Members thanks to our Industry Partners to bring the cost down to $102.00 ($123.30 after taxes). Call 877-424-5554 and reference the MiGCSA for this group room rate.

    Beverage and raffle tickets for the cocktail reception and full hot breakfast is included with registration.
