MEDA Regional Networking and Knowledge Exchange AND Holiday Party

18 Winter NK Marketing HeaderThis event will be held on Thursday, December 13, 2018, at Valentine Distilling Co. in Ferndale, Michigan.

About the Exchange

MEDA's Regional Networking and Knowledge Exchanges started in 2016 when MEDA's Membership Committee made it a goal to increase member engagement for the Association after members sought more time for networking at events.

MEDA members are invited and encouraged to bring their local partners to this casual afternoon of meeting and mingling. To add to the value, you will go home with information that will help you do your job more efficiently and effectively, which is MEDA's Mission and Vision for you.

Thank You Sponsors

MEDA would like to thank Consumers Energy, DTE Energy, LandUseUSA and SBAM Emergy Solutions/Small Business Association of Michigan for sponsoring this event.

Energy Solutions for Small Businesses
Energy is part of doing businesses and some small businesses may not have the expertise to make sure they are as efficient as possible in areas like power, heat, and water usage. Programs like account overview analysis, energy audits, and rebates, can save precious resources that business owners could put toward their product or service rather than their energy bill. Learn how the Small Business Association of Michigan, Consumers Energy, and DTE Energy have partnered to help businesses save time and money though SBAM Energy Solutions.
