Detroit Regional Chamber And Detroit Public TV Reflect Mackinac Moments And Michigan's Future

As Michigan's business, government and civic leaders continue to work remotely, many are missing the tradition of the annual Detroit Regional Chamber Mackinac Policy Conference at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. For the past 39 years, statewide leaders have spent three days each spring discussing Michigan's critical issues and, in many cases, putting solutions into motion.

For individuals used to attending or tuning into the Conference the week of Memorial Day, the Chamber and Detroit Public TV will spend Tuesday, May 26, through Thursday, May 28, sharing some of the most memorable #MPCMoments, highlights of past conferences combined with live panels moderated by One Detroit's Nolan Finley, Stephen Henderson and Christy McDonald.

The #MPCMoments will focus on discussions among statewide leaders on the best ways to move Michigan forward, which has long been the essence of the Mackinac Policy Conference.

During the week that would have been the 2020 Conference, join these special sessions each day at noon via a livestream at

Mackinac Moments are brought to you in part by DTE Foundation and Masco Corporation.
