Being the state Capitol comes with a few perks, not only do we rub shoulders with the top elected officials in the State of Michigan, but we're also the home to dozens of professional industry associations. Often associations bring with them advocacy and the collective voice of hundreds of members. Where else can you stand in line for a cup of coffee with multiple State Senators and Representatives? Maybe you'll catch the Governor grabbing a power lunch on Washington Square, or run into a Congressman in town to meet with state legislators. What makes Lansing so valuable to associations? For one, there is a convenience factor, with being just minutes from the floor of the legislature, but also a City that works to be a comfy home for groups ranging from just one employee to dozens. The economic development professionals at the Lansing EDC are here to serve you and your members to make doing business in Lansing a sought after experience.
When it comes to being an association, Lansing is where it happens, whether it be a group retreat for your members or a day spent meeting with legislators on issues important to your industry, Lansing is the obvious location to see and be seen by the decision makers of the State of Michigan.
