As MISSAR State President and in lieu of a Recording Secretary, I’m pleased to provide you with the MISSAR State Annual & BOM Meeting Notice, Registration Form and details for April 12-13, 2024 meeting in Lansing at the Crowne Plaza Lansing West Hotel, see attachment.

I know many Compatriots have wanted a more central location for MISSAR State Annual Meeting and Gala–we’re providing that in Lansing. Note both MISSAR hotel room and meal costs are much lower this year, compared to last! I think you’ll enjoy the Crowne Plaza Lansing West Hotel which is just off of I-496 Freeway and has been remodeled recently.

Next, a tentative Agenda for MISSAR Annual Meeting and Board of Managers Meeting is attached, with Final Agenda to be sent out next month. I ask that MISSAR State Officers, Committee Chairs & Chapter Presidents please submit their Reports by March 27, 2024, to Bob Craig, MISSAR 2nd Vice-President, electronically at: [email protected] .

The attached Registration Form has important March deadlines that must be met for Crowne Plaza Hotel Lansing room and meals. Meal reservations are due by March 27, 2024. Both Meal Reservations Form and check should be sent by USPS mail to MISSAR 2nd Vice-President Bob Craig, 812 W. Park Street, St. Johns, MI 48879. Payment via PayPal is also available.

Block Room rate for MISSAR Friday night is $149.00 (plus taxes/fees) for Standard Room. Block rate available through March 13, 2024 (Rooms may be available after deadline, depending upon space; rates may increase to $250.)

Room reservations can be made by calling (877) 322-5544 OR on-line visit www.crowneplaza.com/lansingwest . Group Code is SSA

Next, the MISSAR Pvt. Ephraim Wheaton Chapter (David VanHoof, President) is proud to host MISSAR State Annual Meeting, GALA and BOM in Lansing–Michigan’s Capital City! They’ve organized educational tours of three fabulous state government buildings, see attachment. These SAR tours are optional, not required. On Friday, two FREE docent-led tours of (1) Michigan Hall of Justice including Supreme Court at 12:30 pm; and (2) the State Capitol Building and Heritage Hall Visitor Center at 3 pm are available. Convenient public parking is nearby. It’s a short 10-minute walk on the brick walkway between the Hall of Justice and State Capitol.

Finally on Saturday while MISSAR leadership will be doing important business, Wheaton Chapter has arranged a self-guided tour of Michigan History Museum and State Library/Archives in Downtown Lansing. MISSAR spouses and visitors can participate anytime, 10 am to 4 pm. Convenient parking is nearby. While entrance to State Library/Archives is FREE, there’s an admission of $8.00 per person for an educational tour of the fabulous Michigan History Museum.

I look forward to seeing you all in Lansing on April 12-13, 2024 for MISSAR State Annual Meeting, GALA and BOM. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments. Thanks!
