Please plan to join the ACI Greater Michigan Chapter for our 2018 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 Greenfield Village. The evening will include great socializing time, fantastic food and this world acclaimed historical attraction.
To start off the evening, take time to socialize with your industry friends as we enjoy cocktails and dinner in the Michigan Cafe. After dinner, you will have time to mingle with merrymakers amid the smells of roasting chestnuts and warm bonfires: the sounds of carolers, fiddlers and sleigh bells: and other yuletide activity during Holiday Nights in Greenfield Village. Main Street brims with holiday goods, food and warm beverages. Historical home tours open the doors to centuries of favorite family holiday traditions. Don't forget to take in Historic Rides on Horse-Drawn Wagons, Model T’s and the 1913 Carousel as well as ice-skating and the Fireworks Finale and Sing-Along!
After exploring the village, wait for traffic to clear, and return to the Michigan Cafe to join us as we will hold a brief business meeting and afterglow party with bar, desserts and coffee.
