U.P. Education Summit

After a two-year absence, the annual U.P. Education Summit is back with an outstanding session lineup you won’t want to miss. This is a chance for city and village officials from the U.P. to meet and share experiences and ideas with each other as well as with Michigan Municipal League leadership in attendance.

This year’s topics include Allocating Your ARPA Funds for Maximum Impact, Legislative Update, Investment Attraction, and more. One of the major topics at this year’s Summit is ServeMiCity – a new flagship member service by the Michigan Municipal League and supported by the MML Foundation. ServeMiCity is a guide for MML members on allocating your new state and federal funding for maximum impact. Effectively utilizing these historic investments is crucial to making positive impacts for generations to come. The League wants to make sure that every community has access to the information and resources they need to make these vital investments.
