This event will be held on Wednesday, February 21, 2018, at the Lansing Center in Downtown Lansing.
Capitol Day is MEDA's annual legislative conference, which includes sessions on the latest legislative issues related to economic development as well as State and Federal agency updates on economic development initiatives and laws.
Capitol Day attendees are encouraged to invite their legislators and legislative staff to talk about the topics presented during the day or to talk about issues specific to their community. Legislators and their staff are welcome to attend complimentarily.
In order to develop the conference around the most important legislative issues of the time, MEDA's Advocacy Committee, a volunteer group of MEDA members, plans the agenda.
