WMU President John M. Dunn, and John Bebow, president of the Center for Michigan, will give introductory remarks at the 90-minute program, which will include information about vote-recording technology and small-group discussions on where state government should be headed in the coming months and years. The event is open to the public free of charge, but reservations are required.

Through a format developed by the Center for Michigan, participants will have the opportunity to share their views on public trust in state government. The Center for Michigan is a nonprofit, nonpartisan "think-and-do tank" that collects ideas and shares them with policymakers in Lansing as well as with the public.

The event is being co-sponsored by WMU's offices of Government Affairs, University Relations and Community Outreach.


Seating is limited. Those wishing to attend must reserve a spot: or (269) 345-1913.
