Mark your calendars and save the dates for 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. The first will be held this year in downtown Grand Rapids at the Amway Grand Hotel on March 5th & 6th. In order to better accommodate our members schedules we will begin at 1:00 on March 5th and conclude on March 6th at 11:30 am.

This event will replace the three traditional meetings at The Inn at St. John's, Egypt Valley and Treetops.

The cost will be just $75 for class A, B and AFF Members and $25 for all other classes. Hotel rooms will be available for $179.00 minus a $50 discount per room for MiGCSA Members thanks to our generous Industry Partners to bring the cost down to $129.00. Beverage tickets for the cocktail reception and breakfast is included with registration.

This event will be in Detroit in 2020 and Northern Michigan in 2021 and this rotation will continue.
