MUCC’s 2012 Annual Convention & Resolutions

May 16th, 2012

MUCC’s membership establishes MUCC’s policies and priorities for the upcoming year every year at the Annual Convention. Held at the end of June, MUCC’s Annual Convention is attended by over ­150 voting delegates representing MUCC’s 250+ affiliated clubs and 42,000 members. These delegates are charged with reviewing and voting on resolutions (proposed policy) brought forward by MUCC members, clubs, regions, or by MUCC’s Committees.

This summer, MUCC’s 2012 Annual Convention will be held June 22-23, 2012 at the Lansing Center. Delegates will have 19 proposed resolutions to consider and we hope MUCC members will make sure to let your club or Individual Member Rep know how you feel about these proposals.

The full text of the resolutions, along with MUCC staff comments along with comments from the Department of Natural Resources (where applicable), can be downloaded in a single document here.
