Michigan Pet Fund Alliance invites you to be a part of the 2018 Getting to the Goal conference & Best Friends Midwest Regional Leadership Summit being held at the Radisson Plaza Hotel at Kalamazoo Center, Sept. 27-28, 2018. 
This conference promises to be more exciting and far-reaching than any to date due to the partnership with Best Friends Animal Society Midwest Region, allowing our life-saving message to expand into Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and West Virginia. 

The last Getting to the Goal conference welcomed more than 200 shelter and rescue personnel, animal control staff, volunteers, policy makers and animal advocates.  Thanks to an impressive speaker list and variety of topics, an even larger number is expected this year.

Attendee registration opens May 2. Full conference details are  here
