MUCC is a strong, vibrant and impactful organization because of you, our members and affiliates. By being a true grassroots organization whose direction, focus and priorities are established by our members, our credibility relies on strength in numbers. Our Annual Convention is a time to reconnect with old friends, make new connections and set forth a vision for conservation and our outdoor heritage.

Every year since 1937, we have gathered to set the conservation agenda for Michigan. This year, we will convene in Mt. Pleasant at the Mt. Pleasant Comfort Inn & Suites Hotel and Conference Center from March 24-26.

The involvement of you and your organization in this process is vital to the success of MUCC. Sending representatives from your club ensures that your voice and your priorities are reflected in the work that MUCC does.

Our Annual Convention is one of the highlights of the year for the MUCC family. If you regularly attend convention, you already know the many improvements we have made to guarantee a fun, enriching and energizing weekend. If you haven’t been to convention or your club has not been represented there recently, please plan to attend.
