Please plan to join the ACI Greater Michigan Chapter for our 2016 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 Joe Louis Arena, the home of the Detroit Red Wings! The evening will include great socializing time, fantastic food and the opportunity to explore behind the scenes at Joe Louis Arena (sorry, no Red Wings locker room), and to skate on the Joe Louis Arena ice!.
As this is the final year for the Red Wings to play home games at the "Joe", this may be your last opportunity to visit this iconic building which has been such a big part of Detroit's sporting history since it opened in 1979. This will likely be a once in a lifetime opportunity to skate on the Joe Louis Arena ice, something not to be missed. Free rental skates will be available to all attendees. Hot chocolate & coffee will be available on the ice to keep you warm.
Before dinner take some time to network with your ACI GMC friends while you enjoy the fantastic views of the entire arena and ice surface from the Legend's Club at the Joe. Following dinner, you will be able to take guided tours of the arena and have the opportunity to skate on the same ice that has hosted so many memorable moments over the past 37 years.
