Connecting residents to jobs focus of conference
Mon, 17 Mar 2014 11:54:01 GMT — Gov. Rick Snyder is expected to share ideas about connecting Michigan residents to jobs during a two-day conference with business, academic and government leaders.
The Governor's Economic Summit kicks off Monday at the DeVos Place Convention Center in Grand Rapids. Organizers say it's a continuation of last year's summit, and officials plan to explore ideas that emerged at that gathering in Detroit.
Snyder is scheduled to speak Tuesday. Michigan Economic Development Corp. President and Chief Executive Michael Finney will give opening remarks on Monday.
Other planned speakers include Amway President Doug DeVos and professor Jeff DeGraff of University of Michigan's Ross School of Business.
