Power Shift Michigan 2009 will be taking place October 9th – October 11th, 2009 in Lansing. We plan on building off the momentum and energy of the National Summit this past March and activating a whole new crop of progressive leaders.

We have established a planning committee consisting of eight working groups to assist with the planning and implementation of the conference and its goals. That being said, there is a lot to do with little time – we need your help!

Below is a list of the working groups with a brief explanation of their responsibilities. Please look them over and sign up for the group you would be most interested in working on by clicking on the link below and submitting your choices by Friday, September 4th, 2009 at noon. We will be holding conference calls this weekend and early next week with each individual working group to get everyone on the same page and assist you with getting to work on the conference.

Working groups:

Housing Working Group – Determining housing needs and securing housing in the Lansing area.

March, Rally, and Protest Working Group – Plan the political activism aspect of the conference.

Fundraising and Budget Working Group – Seeking donations to fund the conference and create a budget for the needs of the conference.

Logistics Working Group – Plan for the logistical needs of the conference.
