AWI-Great Lakes Annual Member Meeting 

Join us in West Michigan’s lakeshore city Holland, known for white sandy beaches, dutch dancing, and tulips for our Annual AWI Great Lakes Members Meeting Thursday, September 13 through Friday, September 14.  This annual event begins with an optional fun activity-this year it's charter fishing on Lake Michigan. Enjoy a good meal with your fellow members Thursday evening at the City Flats Hotel downtown Holland followed by a pub party in one of the many breweries downtown for a great time to meet and mingle over a beverage or two. The next morning begins with a member breakfast round table to discuss common challenges we are facing in the industry, get an update on national news and how your local chapter is providing opportunities. Then join us as we tour local manufacturers (the list of potentials includes, Tiara Yachts, JR Automation, a local cabinet shop and a place hand crafting wooden bowls). We’ll round out the experience with an optional lunch downtown Holland to end the day before heading back home or continuing your weekend vacation.
