Building on the Network’s new strategic plan, the day’s theme is Create: Connections, Capacity, Communications. Morning sessions feature discussion panels with state and local leaders, inspiring keynotes, much sharing, and, back by popular demand, “power networking.” Afternoon breakouts follow three tracks – Artists, Capacity and Communications – with hands-on tools, tips and strategies. And – throughout the day – there is plenty of time to network, share strategies, participate in session discussions and build community with our colleagues across northern Michigan and beyond.
