The Michigan Advocacy Conference (MAC) is a student-led and organized advocacy conference focused on heightening the awareness towards the value of after-school FIRST and STEM education. Attendees will get the opportunity to listen and speak to advocacy experts on a variety of topics including how to get started in state advocacy, Michigan's unique role in STEM education, and the impact of student advocacy. Attendees will then be able to create meetings with elected officials to put their newly-acquired advocacy knowledge to use. Students, mentors, and parents are all welcome to register.
