2022 Annual Conference

Join your state-wide colleagues on Mackinac Island for the 2022 MMA Annual Conference at the Grand Hotel! Help MMA celebrate our 50th Anniversary by returning to the site of our first conference in 1971. 

Save the Dates: October 10-12, 2022

Planning is underway and we are excited to share more with you over the coming months. 

In the meantime, plan to attend our many virtual events, join a member community or volunteer for one of our planning teams!

Anticipated Costs

We are working hard to find ways to keep the conference as affordable and accessible as possible. Please use this list as a starting point for budgeting for the 2022 MMA Annual Conference and more logistical details will follow this winter. 

  • Thanks to Shepler's Ferry, there will be a discounted ticket rate for conference attendees traveling between October 7 and October 12. Tickets are $23 round-trip for an adult and $14 for children. The discount code will be available once conference registration opens. Contact us if you need the code prior to registration opening.  
  • Depending on the ferry company and location, parking can be up to $10 per night. 
  • The base room rate at the Grand Hotel, not including taxes and fees, is $200 per room, per night. With taxes and all fees (including for luggage), this works out to be about $130 per person, per night based on double occupancy. Room upgrades and breakfast add-ons are also available. This room rate is available 10/7/2022 to 10/15/2022.
  • Registration cost for the conference will be available soon but again, will be kept as low as possible and in line with previous conferences.
