Traverse Connect Advocacy
Traverse Connect works to help you grow your business in northern through our investor programs, networking, and resources. Another benefit of joining Traverse Connect is government advocacy by our Director of Government Relations to improve the business environment locally, and in Lansing. Traverse Connect amplifies the voice of business through our partnership in the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance. The Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance is a coalition of 16 chambers and economic development organizations from across northern Michigan. The Alliance partnership works from the premise that many legislative issues impact the U.P. and northern Lower Peninsula in similar ways. Our coalition exists to advocate for rural northern Michigan and move forward rural-centric business policy.
The partnership of the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance addresses legislative issues that impact Northern Michigan’s Upper and Lower Northern region in similar ways.
