Networks Northwest Board

  Board Chair: Sue Peters
Chief Executive Officer: Matt McCauley

The Networks Northwest Board is a public-private partnership board administering a variety of programs for the 10-county area of Northwest Michigan.


The Board has these primary purposes: 

  • To provide strategic resources (data, leadership, education, publications, models, staff time, funds, etc.) for the region’s economic and community vitality.
  • To provide a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for use by community officials, businesses and organizations.
  • To discuss and create macro-level recommendations for impact around the core elements of the CEDS.
  • To connect and support regional networks around topics related to economic and community vitality.
  • To provide oversight for financial and operational effectiveness. This is done largely through three committees: Executive/Governance; Finance/Audit; Career Education Advisory Council. If you would like agendas or minutes for any of these committees, please contact Networks Northwest at 231-929-5000.

Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
