Annual Conference

MCA knows that nothing compares to the opportunity to get away from the office for a few days to learn and to network with colleagues from around the state. Each year, MCA hosts our summer conference for member agencies and key partners. Local, state and national experts present best practices and innovations, and share important information to prepare the network for the future. The conference offers workshops for frontline staff, managers, directors and board members. To see our 2016 conference program, click here.

We appreciate the support of our conference sponsors. This event is the best opportunity of the year for sponsors and exhibitors to meet our members, discuss issues of common interest and build relationships.  To see a list of 2016 sponsors, click here. Or become a sponsor for our conference next summer.

The summer conference is also the time we raise money for the Friends of Michigan Community Action, our political action committee. Our annual reception for the 52 Club Members and auction is a great time to socialize with colleagues and get some great deals!  To donate items for the auction, please click here
