What Kind of Professional Development are You Looking For?
Looking forward to 2019, help Michigan Presenters better serve you, its members, by telling us what's on your mind regarding professional development.

Michigan Presenters meetings and conferences present a unique opportunity to dig into topics directly relevant to our members, rather than skimming the surface as sessions do at larger regional and national conferences.
  • What topics are on your mind?
  • What issues are you encountering in your organization?
  • What is useful to new or younger staff in your organization?
  • What sessions have you attended elsewhere that you'd like to build upon?
Take this short survey by July 11 and help shape the future of Michigan Presenters.
