If you’ve already registered, your ticket will be applied to the rescheduled event. If you would prefer otherwise, please contact us at info@michamber.com. Thank you for your understanding and stay safe and well!

Join us for a unique day of learning, inspiring and connecting! The 2020 Michigan ATHENA Conference will bring together hundreds of professional women from across Michigan to hear uplifting stories, compelling panel discussions, opportunities to collaborate and more. You won’t want to miss it!

The Michigan ATHENA Conference will take place on Thursday, May 14 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the JW Marriott in downtown Grand Rapids.
