Michigan CEC is celebrating our 77th annual conference by presenting national speakers, over 120 breakout sessions, 40+ exhibitors and unique networking opportunities. A conference of this caliber could not happen without the MCEC Board of Directors, volunteers, the speakers, and YOU.
Our goal for each participant is to have a productive learning experience and an opportunity to share with colleagues from across our state through quality, research-based sessions, enjoyable receptions and productive organizational meetings.
