NWMCOG Connects with Region's Legislators

On February 6th, 2013, the Northwest Michigan Council of Governments (NWMCOG) held an informal luncheon open house in Lansing for the region's eight state legislators and their staff members. The luncheon provided the NWMCOG staff some time to keep legislators up to date on the agency's current activities pertaining to workforce, economic, and community development.
