Governor Gretchen Whitmer will join us in our exploration of equity in Michigan communities and philanthropy, and how collaboration can lead to transformative and sustainable solutions. Michigan has a long history of effective collaborations between philanthropy and state government, especially with the executive branch, and the CMF conference is no exception. We are fortunate to have built a tradition of welcoming our new governors to the Annual Conference. Governors George Romney, William Milliken, John Engler, Jennifer Granholm and Rick Snyder have each spoken before our members in previous years and we are pleased this tradition is continuing for 2019 with our current administration.
Following Governor Whitmer’s remarks, she will be joined by emerging leaders for continued conversation on supporting an equitable future in Michigan.
