Collaboration Needed for Regional Progress

It's no secret that many Michiganders are frustrated by our current economy and the state of our State. If we have not been directly impacted, our families or friends most likely have. Many are quick to point out the imminent need to develop a strong diversified economy, create jobs/higher incomes, and offer a richer quality of life in order to compete with the rest of nation. But how do we get there?

On Thursday, May 13, the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber will host its Regional Forecast Luncheon to discuss the importance of regional efforts and collaboration in turning our State around. Speakers include Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, Wayne County Executive Bob Ficano, and John Van Fossen, practice group leader of the Government and Public Affairs Group, Clark Hill, additional speakers to be announced.
