Volunteers Sought for 2019 GLIA Summit Planning Committee

Planning for the 2019 Great Lakes Islands Summit on Mackinac Island is underway and volunteers are being sought to develop an agenda, help with event logistics, and assist with activities and programs.

Mike Olson chairs the committee comprised of Dennis Bradley, Rick Linn, Christine Rollins, and Anne St. Onge.

The summit serves as the annual gathering of the newly formed Great Lakes Islands Alliance. The first summit was held on Beaver Island in 2017 and this year’s summit was held on Madeline Island, Wisconsin.

Hoteliers and tourism representatives are working with the committee on planning the 2019 conference, which is tentatively planned for late October at Mission Point Resort, although many details have yet to be finalized.

Those interested in helping can contact Mr. Olson at the City of Mackinac Island Department of Public Works, (906) 847-6130 or midpw@cityofmi.org.
