Michigan Society of Association Executives (MSAE) suppliers, members and friends started their day on Nov. 17 at the Marriott East Lansing at University Place for the Association Choice Awards Celebration (see page 56) networking brunch. Sixty-eight supplier partners that make a difference in the association community were nominated in 23 categories. Online voting by only MSAE members whittled the finalists in each category down to the winners. 

“The meetings industry is so collaborative that it is fitting to recognize the partners that make associations successful,” MSAE President and CEO Cheryl Ronk said during the presentations.

A charity raffle raised $900 to benefit the Nottingham Nature Nook Winter Wildlife Food Drive 2017.

Event sponsors were the Marriott East Lansing at University Place, BRD Printing and Motown Digital. msae.org

More good news for meetings and events continues to pour out of the Gerald R. Ford International (GFIA) Airport.

The airport reported an almost 6 percent increase in passengers—2,811,622 total in 2017—flying and in out of the Grand Rapids facility. That record established the best year in the airport’s 54-year history, and marked the fifth straight year of record-setting growth.

The airport saw growth in 11 of 12 months during 2017, and experienced 53 months of growth over a 60-month period.
