 Your Summer Reading List

Congratulations and kudos to the MI-ACE Women’s Network for putting together an amazing 2022 Annual Conference, held this past week at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI. A special thank you to our Host Institution, the College for Creative Studies; our Platinum Sponsoring Institution, the Wayne County Community College District; and to the many wonderful speakers, presenters and volunteers.
