Michigan Women's Conference 2017

Dear Women in Recovery,

Please join us at the 13th Annual Michigan Women’s Conference Friday October 13th to Sunday, October 15th at Garland Resort in Lewiston, MI!

Garland Resort in Lewiston, MI! We think Garland Resort so far has been a good fit for our conference and offers a beautiful setting with a banquet facility to accommodate our conference. Once again we are planning a wonderful conference with plenty of fantastic panels with a variety of recovery topics. We have kept the 4 “Back to Basics” panels that we think will help anyone who attends, giving them rundown of the steps all in one day! Also this year’s Saturday night entertainment will be a great time with DJ and some karaoke. The costume theme this year is your favorite genre of music such as disco, country or music decade 70’s 80’s etc.! Don’t forget about the recovery-themed book swap in the Hospitality Suite, more information is available on our website.

Remember when you order your souvenirs our shirts are in Women’s sizes! You can check out the agenda for the weekend and review the panel topics at our website www.miwcaa.com. You may register and purchase souvenirs online using a credit card or a Pay Pal account.
