We couldn’t be more excited for our 2022 Michigan Municipal League Convention happening this year in beautiful Muskegon. Things got underway Tuesday with the MML Board meeting. There were reports and presentations about what to expect during Convention this week, how the MML is delivering resources to local communities, an overview of upcoming ServeMICity workshops and trainings, a legislative update, and a report from the MML Foundation. This year’s Convention marks a reset for our local leaders. Positive change is happening across the state. Thanks to the hard work of our members, now is the moment to shape a future that turns this potential into prosperity. Attendees will spend Oct. 19-21 meeting with transformational thinkers and fellow local leaders to fill up on inspiration, energy, insight, and new tools at this year’s Convention! While in this shoreline community, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to explore. You can catch a stunning sunset over the water, stroll along the beach and pier at Pere Marquette Park, and discover the downtown revitalization that’s underway, including the city’s expansive social district. Of course, the main show is the Convention itself, and we have put together a fantastic agenda of inspiring speakers and education sessions on multiple topics. On the main stage, we’re particularly excited to have keynote speaker Symone D. Sanders-Townsend, host of the MSNBC news show “Symone” and former chief spokesperson and senior advisor for Vice President Kamala Harris. Plus, there are sessions on space-hacking, using social media effectively at the local level, the intersection of law enforcement and mental health services, creating a municipal climate action plan, and data-driven-decision making. We also will cover ways to use your state and federal assistance funding to improve community prosperity and quality of life and get a legislative update from our Lansing advocacy team. Even with that list, we’ve barely scratched the surface of all the sessions, workshops, activities, and tours planned. Our general sessions and speakers are: HOUSING: A LOCAL PERSPECTIVE FOR MICHIGANDERS BY MICHIGANDERS Speakers: Brenda Harris, Realtor, Fivestar* Real Estate Moderator: Selma Tucker, Director, Strategic Communications, Michigan Municipal League Everyone is talking about the housing market. Let’s go behind the scenes with a real estate agent to get their take. Chat with Brenda Harris, a well-known realtor and short-term rental business owner in Muskegon and the region. Brenda will join the MML’s Selma Tucker for the inside scoop on the issues real people and their communities care about—attainable and affordable housing, new supply, funding, and—yes—short-term rentals. You might be surprised by what she has to say. PUBLIC SERVICE FROM OMAHA TO THE WHITE HOUSE Speakers: Symone D. Sanders-Townsend, author, seasoned democratic strategist and host of “SYMONE” on MSNBC and MSNBC on Peacock Why are you a public servant? It probably has something to do with where you’re from and how that community shaped your future. Symone Sanders-Townsend is creating a legacy of public service at the national level rooted in the values of her hometown of North Omaha, Nebraska. Those values have catapulted Symone to rarified air on that national stage having held senior positions in presidential campaigns, the White House, and now her own show, “Symone” on MSNBC. At 32, Symone speaks from a generation of public servants investing heavily in a future that has more opportunity, equity, and joy. STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY THROUGH MUSIC Speakers: John Sinkevics, Editor and Publisher, Local Spins Online Magazine Michigan has a special relationship with music. Motown was created in Detroit. Bob Seger, Eminem, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, The White Stripes, Madonna, Diana Ross, Kid Rock, Smokey Robinson and many other marquee names were born and, in many cases, raised in one of our communities. Add the rich history of concert venues from Idlewild to Houghton and it becomes clear that music is a Michigan asset. How can communities support their local musicians? How can music help bring us together when we feel so far apart? Answers and more at this lively and interactive session.
