MiCAMP Fall Conference 2021

Boyne Mountain Resort

September 22 - 24, 2021

June 4 Update – With the current MDHHS plans to lift all covid-19 restrictions July 1, MiCAMP and Boyne are planning that we’ll be back to normal (for the most part) for September. There will be some changes at Boyne, but we are very excited to be able to meet again and see all our friends and colleagues. Conference details will be posted on this page as we finalize them, so check back often.

 

We encourage you to register soon so we can get accurate counts for Boyne. MiCAMP does not have a conference registration fee, so registering now does not put you on the hook for anything. Just make sure you pay your dues and you’ll be all set. If you register and need to cancel a registration, just send us an email and we can help. If you need to cancel a room at Boyne, you’ll need to contact them directly. Room cancellations need to be done at least 7 days before the conference.

 

As a bit of incentive to encourage registrations, if you register for the Conference before Friday July 9, you will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 gift card from Boyne Mountain. You can use the gift card to buy some swag at Boyne (hat, shirt, etc.). We have a handful of gift cards to award, so register now and you might win! Those that have already registered (thank-you!) will be included in the drawing. You’ll need to be at the conference to win.

Conference Items

We’re looking to organize an “unofficial” golf event for 2021. Boyne Mountain has reserved a block of tee times for a MiCAMP group to golf 18 holes on The Alpine course. If you are interested, submit your info using the form below. Golfers will pay individually at the pro shop Wednesday morning, with tee times being from 9:30am – 10am. Golfers can pair up beforehand or that morning.

We’re hoping to bring back lightning rounds for Wednesday, but only if we get the interest. Lightning rounds are quick, 5-7 minute presentations given by our members. It can be on a neat AGO project, data analysis you’ve done, or maybe a script or model you’ve created that you’d like to show and share. If you’re interested in participating, use the form below. Please sign up before July 16. If we don’t have enough interest by that date, the Board will move forward with another option for Wednesday.
