Description:MDA Lansing Day

Michigan Municipal League Building
208 North Capitol Avenue, Lansing, MI 48933

The MDA’s annual Lansing Day is an opportunity for members to meet their state legislators and share the MDA’s current legislative concerns. Personally talking to your legislators helps to make the representatives more effective advocates for their communities at the state level. MDA member participation in Lansing Day is critical. With new legislators now in office, this is an especially important time for you to connect and for the MDA to be visible!   

A MDA workshop follows the annual Lansing Day and takes place on Thursday, March 14 in East Lansing.  Registrations for both may be combined for a discounted amount.  You will be able to register for both as you proceed through the online registration.
