25 Years of MI-SRA: Bridging the Past and Celebrating the Future of Research Administration

The Michigan Chapter of the Society of Research Administrators International, in celebration of our 25th Anniversary as a chapter, is proud to announce our 2019 Annual Meeting, being held on June 10 - 11 at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. Mackinac Island is around four (4) hours from most locations in Michigan, and our hope is that you'll make the drive to enjoy professional development that bridges our past and celebrates the future of research administration at this amazing venue, with a special group hotel rate. Grand Hotel is third generation family owned, rich in history of over 130 years and located on Mackinac Island, where no motorized vehicles are allowed and travel is by bicycle or horse-drawn carriages. Save the date to join us for two-days in one of the most beautiful locations in Michigan for networking, professional development and fun!
