Event description

Description

The Michigan Port Collaborative is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization that has represented the ports of Michigan for over a decade on issues that are critical to the economic success of all ports and harbors.

The purpose of this meeting is to reveal the results of the first "full spectrum" Economic Impact Study" of Michigan's ports ever conducted in this state. Through a grant provided by the Michigan Waterways Commission, the Port Collaborative hired Dr. Vincent Magnini, PhD., Executive Director of the Institute for Service Research in Virginia Beach, Va. to conduct the study. While a number of economic impact studies have been conducted over the years, those studies focused on traditional maritime measurements. This "full spectrum" study also includes economic drivers for individual ports that add economic values that have not been included in previous studies such as port specific businesses, port specific tourism and port specific recreation.

During the morning session you will also hear updates on Michigan's Small Harbors and Great Lakes Cruising Activities.

Enjoy lunch, meet with your fellow port communities and talk with state legislators about port and harbor related issues.

During the afternoon workshop, Ports who participated in the study will learn how to use the MPC custom designed software to compute their port's economic impact on an on going basis.
