Change happens, and thankfully MUCC is the kind of organization where we have the systems and plans in place to allow our organization to adapt and survive change for the last 76 years and will continue well beyond our lifetimes.

Late last year, MUCC’s Legislative Affairs Manager Kent Wood left our organization for a great opportunity at the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce. Tony Hansen is no longer serving as Director of Communications, but will continue on as Managing Editor of Michigan OutofDoors Magazine. In light of these changes, we are delighted to introduce you to staff new to MUCC!
