Live Mackinac Policy Conference + Mackinac (ish)

It's nearly that time to talk policy. All next week a number of us at WDET will either be at the Mackinac Policy Conference of Mackinac (ish), a conference running concurrently in Charlevoix powered by tomorrow's leaders and grassroots organizers. Below you'll find our rundown and who will be where. Also, we are carrying each conference live via live stream if you're not able to attend either of them. Once live, the players can be viewed below.

So, where will we be?

Craig Fahle is heading to the Mackinac Policy Conference and he's taking your ‘Smart Politics’ questions with him. The Craig Fahle Show will broadcast live throughout the week from The Mackinac Policy Conference.

Starting Tuesday, you'll here interviews with the keynote speakers, policy makers and government officials who are gathered to discuss the major issues facing Michigan. Stay engaged in the conversation by sharing comments on Facebook or using #CraigShow on Twitter. You can also follow the conference via Twitter with #MPC2014 (we've supplied a widget below).

Our Digital Specialist Terry Parris Jr. is heading to Charlevoix for ASSEMBLE @ Mackinac (ish), where tomorrow leaders are looking at the future of our region. Follow the conversation using #MPCish on Twitter (again, a widget can be found below).
