West Michigan is a place where business thrives and people want to live and work. Hello West Michigan seeks to help member organizations recruit the top talent they need to continue growing the West Michigan economy. Through the members and partnerships with other organizations throughout the area, they help new residents find their fit in West Michigan. The Annual Meeting for Hello West Michigan was held at the recently renovated Meijer Corporate Headquarters on the northwest side of Grand Rapids. The space was great for a strolling evening meal along with a great setup for presentations from Hello West Michigan's Executive Director Cindy Brown, Board Chair Ann Harten and featured keynote speaker Birgit Klohs, CEO of The Right Place, an economic development agency with a record of over 40,000 jobs created and $4 billion in capital investment in the West Michigan area.
Hello West Michigan will now be able to use these images to share with current and future members, what it is like attending their annual meeting. They will be able to build a case for growth starting with events later this year.
