MGFOA Spring Seminar 2024

Fri, Mar 8, 2024, 7:30am - 4:30pm

Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center
Michigan State University
219 S. Harrison Road
East Lansing, MI 48824

We are excited to announce that the 2024 Spring Seminar will be offered on a hybrid platform!  Attendees can choose to attend live in person at the Kellogg Center or to join via Zoom.  Zoom attendees will be able to see the slides and speaker and will also be able to submit questions to the speaker.  Attendees attending in person will be able to earn CPE. Those attending virtually will not receive CPE credits. This hybrid approach will allow those that are further from Lansing or unable to commute in to attend and be part of the day. 

Conference App

We are using Whova for our Conference App this year.  When you register for the Spring Seminar your name and email will be added to the App. An email will be sent to registered attendees with download instructions 2 weeks prior to the start date.


7.0 for Other and 1.6 for Accounting and auditing have been awarded. Details will be posted in each session description.
