Michigan Society of Association Executives (MSAE) suppliers, members and friends started their day on Nov. 17 at the Marriott East Lansing at University Place for the Association Choice Awards Celebration (see page 56) networking brunch. Sixty-eight supplier partners that make a difference in the association community were nominated in 23 categories. Online voting by only MSAE members whittled the finalists in each category down to the winners. 

“The meetings industry is so collaborative that it is fitting to recognize the partners that make associations successful,” MSAE President and CEO Cheryl Ronk said during the presentations.

A charity raffle raised $900 to benefit the Nottingham Nature Nook Winter Wildlife Food Drive 2017.

Event sponsors were the Marriott East Lansing at University Place, BRD Printing and Motown Digital. msae.org
