Please plan to join the ACI Greater Michigan Chapter for our 2015 Annual Meeting. This annual tradition has become an event not to be missed, and this year will be no different. This year we will be hosting the Annual Meeting at the Detroit Zoo in the Wildlife Interpretive Gallery. The evening will include great socializing time, fantastic food and the opportunity to experience "Wild Lights" in the grounds of the Zoo.
The Wildlife Interpretive Gallery is the oldest building at the Detroit Zoo and will serve as our private event space for this years annual meeting. Constructed in 1928 the glass-domed bird house is now a multisensory facility that includes a fine art collection, Science On a Sphere educational experience and the most outstanding feature — a lush, tropical indoor Butterfly Garden.
Before dinner take some time to explore the Wildlife Interpretive Gallery and the Butterfly Garden. Following dinner, you will be able to experience "Wild Lights", a spectacular light display consisting of more than five million LED lights which will illuminate trees, buildings, and animal sculptures throughout the front half of the Detroit Zoo.
