A VOICE FOR
MICHIGAN BUSINESSES

The WMPF holds regional meetings throughout the state, to engage with other business leaders—building a strong business dialogue by sharing and identifying policy priorities. With their feedback the WMPF then evaluates and crafts a laser-focused policy agenda that will guide its work with the state legislature and governor throughout the year. We also host a conference every other year to gather business leaders from across Michigan to collectively learn best practices, discuss and vote on the next WMPF policy agenda priorities to ensure we stay focused and productive. These priorities typically fall in one of the following key areas: Government, Transportation, Talent, Labor, or Healthcare.
