Summer Conference

July 30 – August 1
Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center, East Lansing

In her welcome letter in the conference announcement, MEA President, Paula Herbart, starts with:

When I speak with MEA members and leaders attending our conferences, one common refrain I hear matches the title of an infectious Pointer Sisters song from the 1980s – “I’m so excited!”

They’re rejuvenated and ready to get back at it, they say at the conference wrap: “I’m so excited to share this information/try this new idea/implement this innovative plan!”

 I’m always happy for them—and now you.

 Welcome to the Summer Conference: The MEA for Today and Tomorrow. Whether you are a first-time attendee or a returning veteran, there will be much here to replenish your soul and retool your local.

Tavia Redmond: ‘Let me tell you about tired’

Since then, she’s faced tough challenges with grit and patience—mostly in her hometown of Romulus, the Downriver suburb that is home to Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
