    Please plan to join the ACI Greater Michigan Chapter for our 2019 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 Ford Piquette Plant in Detroit.  The evening will include great socializing time, fantastic food and this world acclaimed historical attraction of our automotive history.

    This year’s event we will learn about the introduction of the Ford automobile and assembly line.  The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the preservation of the birthplace of the Model T and the interpretation and celebration of Detroit’s automotive heritage and spirit of innovation.

    To start off the evening, take time to socialize with your industry friends as we enjoy cocktails and dinner in the Piquette Plant.  Immediately following dinner, we will have a brief business program regarding the Chapter’s status.  Before and after dinner, we will have time to mingle with colleagues and friends and enjoy the afterglow party with bar, desserts and coffee as we enjoy the history of the Ford automobile.

    A brief history of our 2019 venue:

    This plant is Ford Motor Company’s first purpose-built factory which assembled Ford Models B, C, F, K, N, R, S, and T.  The Ford Model T was developed here, introduced in 1908 as a 1909 model and the first 12,000 Model Ts were assembled here and shipped out by railroad.  Ford Motor Company relocated to its new Highland Park Plant in 1910, selling the Piquette building to Studebaker in 1911.  Eventually the building was sold in 2000, was restored and now operates as a museum.
