June 25, 2012 — I always look forward to our General Assemblies when we get together with our members.
The June General Assembly is especially exciting. It is mostly ceremonial…Mayor Dave Bing will be on hand to welcome us to Detroit. There are elections of new officers and we’ll hear the remarks of the incoming Chair. We’ll honor this year’s Regional Ambassadors – SEMCOG’s highest award recognizing individuals and organizations for their unique contributions to the quality of life in Southeast Michigan.
And we’ll take the time to talk about the year’s accomplishments. When viewed as a whole, it is always quite substantial. It makes me proud to be leading this organization. We are making progress. Our members are doing great things. They are collaborating with neighbors. The region is improving. Small steps, but important progress.
This year, the General Assembly will be held at Ford Field. Before the meeting, our members will have the chance to tour Ford Field and get some behind-the-scenes glimpses of one of our region’s great assets. Keeping with the football theme, at dinner we’ll hear from former Lion great Herman Moore. His picture hangs prominently in the Hall of Legends where our meeting will be held.
I look forward to seeing many old friends. The dinner honors our past chairs. And I’m excited to welcome a new Chair and some new officers, as well as to greet our members. It will be a great time.
