Young professional groups sprout to grow Mich. connections

Traveling around Michigan is one of the pleasures of running the Center for Michigan. You get a sense of the rhythm of communities and what trends are developing.

One such positive development made the front page of the Battle Creek Enquirer this week: Young professionals banding together to find ways to build strong communities.

In our Land O Links round-up, we recently highlighted a new such group forming in Otsego County and an ongoing one in Traverse City.

Lansing also has a vibrant group, the Grand River Connection, which is co-hosting with the Center a community conversation on K-12 education on Thursday.

The conversation is part of Grand River Connection's Business Breakfast and will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 am at Michigan State University's James B. Henry Center for Executive Development. If you are in theLansing area that morning and would like to attend, please RSVP toNaomi Burton,

And if you are interested in having your group co-host a community conversation, visit the Center's website for details.
