Annual Conference

Boyne Mountain

Summer Conference 2019

Michigan Community Action (MCA) and the Bureau of Community Action & Economic Opportunity (BCAEO) will hold their joint annual Summer Conference from July 23-25 (Tuesday-Thursday), 2019, at Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, MI. Representatives from Michigan's Community Action Agencies, state and local government agencies, and other nonprofit organizations will meet to discuss and share solutions to the causes and conditions of poverty and how the Community Action Network is working to eliminate poverty in Michigan.

The conference agenda is currently under development, but it will include a mixture of general and breakout sessions featuring speakers and topics that will resonate with CAA staff and board members who are interested in improving agency performance and their own personal effectiveness. In addition to the scheduled sessions and events that make up the conference, there are always ample opportunities for learning from peers and colleagues who share similar interests and responsibilities at their agencies.

Organizations and companies that would like to connect with the Community Action network in Michigan can also participate in the conference by becoming conference sponsors and exhibitors. More information on sponsorship can be found here and exhibit opportunities here.

Finally, Northern Michigan is a great place to visit in late July with numerous lakes, rivers, beaches, golf courses, hiking and biking trails and more right there at Boyne Mountain or just a few minutes away. There’s even Avalanche Bay Water Park attached to the hotel! So it’s a great destination for Community Action staff who want a professional development experience along side a wonderful family vacation!
