Food donations were accepted at the Lending and Marketing Conference in Grand Rapids.
When it comes to ideas and informational exchange, the MCUL & Affiliates Lending and Marketing Conference has become an event without bounds. Last week more than 230 attendees flooded the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids to soak up the latest industry insights and head back to work armed with new knowledge to be more successful.
This year's conference featured a corporate social responsibility initiative to support the West Michigan Food Bank with donations of canned goods, toiletries and pet supplies. Attendees enjoyed plenty of networking opportunities, including a reception, a scavenger hunt, complimentary admission to view the Titanic Exhibition at the Grand Rapids Public Museum and an energizing morning Zumba work-out.
The annual event has grown steadily over the past few years and offers a national-level conference experience without leaving the state.
