Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance
2017 Legislative Priorities
All Chambers within the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance are looked upon by its members to provide a wide range of leadership development opportunities. It is the intent of all Chambers to create a continuum of learning that is specific to where an individual may be on the spectrum of leadership development. This will range from emerging leadership programs to senior or c-level executive training. Take a look at where you are on the continuum of learning and you find a multitude of options available within our region to advance your professional development.

It’s composed of the Chambers of Commerce in Traverse City, Alpena, Benzie County, Cadillac, Charlevoix, Manistee, Gaylord, Petoskey and the Lake Superior Community Partnership in Marquette County.
