Mid-Michigan Chapter

The Mid-Michigan Chapter of MACEO was established in 2005, to enable our members in the mid and upper Michigan areas to meet on a quarterly basis in a more accessible location.

The goal of this Chapter is to meet 3 to 4 times each year to provide training and networking to their members.

All members of MACEO may attend any of the meetings. If you would like to be included on the mailing list for this Chapter please contact Jeff Pickler at jpickler@mt-pleasant.org or 989-779-5304.

If you have suggestions for topics of discussion or are interested in other information about the Mid-Michigan Chapter feel free to contact the chapter leader or secretary.

Please check back for future meeting dates and information on past meetings.
