MICBD Conference, Traverse City 2017

The Hilton Hotel is an elegant place to learn and network

Our Bay City Conference features a great location AND some fantastic seminar speakers.

The MICBD Group is proud to bring our brand of small business conference to Bay City and is pleased to offer a Conference at the Hilton DoubleTree Hotel. The Hilton's elegant service, fantastic venue and incredible food were major reasons why the MICBD Group chose this venue for our first 2018 Conference. We are offering an very special After Event too, at the downtown Bay City headquarters of MMLE, just a mile away. Our full Conference, with lunch and all the goodies, is sure to be just as memorable this time around!




Seminars with information you need to know

The Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act required the state to begin accepting applications for businesses on December 15. February 15 was the deadline for existing businesses which wish to  open and conduct business during the applications process. Those applications had to have been from groups who have a city ordinance in place and have approved the zoning of the business being applied for.


Arrive early- Stay late!

Information is the main reason for most of us to attend the Conference, but you can't deny the value of NETWORKING! Every attendee will be treated to refreshments served by the hotel's catering service, and that includes the pre-registration networking mixer. After the microphones are turned off, head to the downtown headquarters of the MMLE for a free networking session featuring refreshments and conversation. All extra- and all free!


Speaker: Kris Jordan, Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation

Ms. Jordan is the Manager of the applications department at the Michigan Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation, a division of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. She oversees the MMFLA application process and is most familiar with how those applications are evaluated, screened and checked for accuracy. She joins the MICBD Group to present for the first time in Bay City.
