Experience Freedom

State Policy Network 23rd Annual Meeting

In Partnership with the Mackinac Center for Public Policy
Sept. 29-Oct. 2, 2015 | Grand Rapids, Mich.

The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is honored to be the host organization for the 23rd annual meeting of State Policy Network, the largest network of free-market organizations in the country. This year’s meeting will take place in locations throughout Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The last time the SPN Annual Meeting was in Michigan was its inaugural year in 1993, in Traverse City. Now SPN is returning to the state where it all started, bringing together more than 1,000 leaders, CEOs, trustees and free-market policy experts to advance the liberty agenda.

These freedom fighters are gathering in Grand Rapids to develop the solutions and skills to advance freedom at both the state and national level. Through the lens of our 2015 theme – Experience Freedom – we will consider ways to sharpen our objectives and strategies and help our core audiences envision their need for freedom. We will inspire and challenge ourselves to give Americans opportunities to experience the benefits of freedom in their everyday lives.

The program focuses on building leaders, refining operations, cultivating excellent communication and outreach strategies, analyzing policy priorities and training top-notch communicators. The 2014 SPN Annual Meeting had 911 attendees, with 56 state-level think tanks representing 49 states.

The SPN Annual Meeting brings together leaders, problem solvers, entrepreneurs and influencers from a variety of sectors.
