PMA West Michigan Town Hall

Registration is closed. Please contact Lori Miedma with any questions.

We are pleased to invite you to the first PMA West Michigan Town Hall, a forum for our community members to come together to discuss PMA's support in overcoming local issues, share ideas and work toward solutions in a collaborative environment.

The Town Hall will facilitate an open dialogue with district officers to identify opportunities and gather feedback on how to strengthen the district's local influence through volunteer leadership, membership benefits, education and training, government advocacy and workforce development.

Laurie Harbour, president and CEO of PMA member savings partner Harbour Results Inc., will provide an opening presentation with information and context to help attendees understand the current national and local issues. We then will open the floor for attendee questions related to PMA's efforts in addressing the issues presented, what more can be done, and how we can grow our voice.
