$2.4 Million Headquarters Complete

Steve Forbes to Keynote June 5 Open House and Ten-Year Anniversary

The nation’s largest state-focused policy research institute has moved into its brand-new $2.4 million headquarters building.

Construction of the new home of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy began in May and was completed in November. More than $2.3 million was raised for the project—over and above the Center’s $1.6 million 1997 operating budget—in about one year.

To coincide with its ten-year anniversary, the Mackinac Center will host an open house at its new headquarters on June 5. Steve Forbes, editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine and former presidential candidate, will be the featured speaker at a special banquet in Midland on that date. Members and friends will receive more information by mail.
