Several Comm-PAC committee members attended the 2018 West Michigan Policy Forum (WMPF) Conference Sept. 23-24 in Grand Rapids to show our support for the work being done by WMPF on behalf of business leaders and citizens of Michigan.

Attendees gathered from around the state to discuss a state policy agenda for 2018-2019 in order to support and strengthen Michigan’s recovery and establish our state as a nationwide leader.

Keynote speaker Tawni Hunt Ferrarini, Ph.D. provided great insight into understanding our state’s fiscal health. A professor of economic education at Lindenwood University’s Hammond Institute, Ferrarini also presented her overview of the state’s funding needed to pay for proposed and current state programs. 

Please take some time to watch her presentation.

Other speakers included Western Michigan University president Dr. Edward Montgomery, former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush, educator Dr. Steve Perry, and American Enterprise Institute president Arthur Brooks.

Once again, we thank the West Michigan Policy Forum for including local leaders, scholars, and Comm-PAC in this important event.
