COMMITTEES


CHARITABLE CAUSES COMMITTEE

This Committee supports and leads MiRC in giving back to Michigan Communities. Each year, with suggestions from our membership, we choose an organization to support at our meetings through various fund-raising events such as Gift Card Raffles and a Silent Auction at our Holiday Meeting. For a list of organizations we have supported over the years, check out our “Charities We Support” webpage.  We are also excited to announce that we have added a Scholarship Program in 2024.  For more details, please see our "Scholarship Program" webpage.

MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE

This Committee manages the annual membership renewal and recruitment, reviews member applications, and maintains accurate member records. We also collect demographics on new and renewing members and ensure information is updated in the member contact directory. We are the main point of contact to address questions and explain the value of membership to potential members, manage annual membership drive each year and report on membership activity at each meeting. We set MiRC’s membership goals for Corporate and Service Provider Membership growth each year and suggest campaigns for growth. We also secure content for our Quarterly Membership Newsletters which are posted on our website under the Membership “Newsletter” tab.  You will need to be a member and logged in to view.

SPONSORSHIP COMMITTEE

This Committee is charged with generating revenue to support MiRC events through direct solicitation of our Service Provider Members. This is achieved by working in tandem with our Media/Website committee to develop content and cadence of email and social media campaigns to raise awareness of sponsorship opportunities available annually as well as specialty meeting sponsorships. Additionally, the sponsorship committee serves as the Board’s ambassador during our events to ensure our Sponsors receive a warm welcome and recognition.

VENUES COMMITTEE

This Committee focuses our energy towards providing an exceptional atmosphere during our Quarterly Meetings. Selection of venues are vetted to make sure that our members and guests enjoy program content and networking. We vet everything from AV needs, food options, attendee capacity to parking as we search for the perfect meeting venues. We strive to choose a variety of locations throughout metro Detroit, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, Lansing, and Kalamazoo. Our focus is on securing Corporate HQs to showcase those companies who relocate talent into Michigan. We also assist with “evening before meeting” networking dinners as well as special networking events after our meetings.
